The family tree of the Lane and Richardson 
Families was compiled by Josephine Anderson 
Knipe and Addams S. McAllister, and is in- 
cluded in this work. It was finished in 
1917, and the editor has added succeeding 
generations where possible.

Members of my family have from time to time 
urged me to write a family history from material I 
have accumulated over the years, but only lately have 
I had the leisure to assemble it. 

When I was a young man I took several "buggy" 
trips with my mother through Montgomery and Chester 
Counties to visit our relatives, and from them I 
gathered many family facts and traditions, notes of 
which I made and filed away. Various stories I heard 
from our great-Aunt Corona Anderson of "St. Georges," 
Ardmore, and from her first cousin Sarah Anderson, 
late of Phoenixville, and our more distant cousin, 
Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker. Much valuable in- 
formation was obtained from family records compiled 
by our late cousin, Mrs. Josephine W. Anderson Knipe, 
of Norristown, Pa., daughter of Dr. Benjamin Ander- 

Other facts have been obtained from records in 
the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and the Mont- 
gomery County Historical Society, and from WELSH SET- 
DESCENDANTS by P. W. Streets, and the DeHAVEN FAMILY 
by Howard DeHaven Ross; and other family chronicles. 

In collating the material I wish to acknowledge 
the invaluable assistance of my sister-in-law, Mrs. 
J. Aubrey Sutton. Among other members of the family 
who have graciously helped materially in gathering 
the data are Sydney S. Anderson, William and Ellis 
Ramsey, Rev. Joseph Schofield, Jr., Bevan Aubrey Pen- 
nypacker and Isaac A. Pennypacker, Esqs., Joseph W. 
Pennypacker of Haddonfield, N- J-, Miss Elsie A. 
Stauffer, Dr. Sara Anderson-Spatz, Mrs. Henry Walt- 
hour, Francis T. Anderson, Esq., C. Colket Wilson, 
Mrs. Harry Brower and others. 

In addition to the Sutton family, this journal 
will deal primarily with the Anderson family and its 
connections; the Lanes, Richardsons, Thomases, Au- 
breys, Bevans, Bartholomews, Schofields, Jermains, 
and with my grandmother's family, the Crawfords, Yo- 
cums, and DeHavens. 

My mother, Hannah Anderson Sutton, was the 
daughter of Isaac Wesley Anderson and Martha Crawford, 


who was the daughter of Joseph Crawford and Hannah 

The wife of Isaac's father, James, was Sarah 
Thomas, and through her we are descended from the 
Aubrey and Walker families. Through the wife of 
James' father, Isaac, who was Mary Lane, we are con- 
nected with the Lanes, Richardsons, and Beavans. 

Isaac senior's father, Patrick, married Eliza- 
beth Morris, a descendant of the Huguenot Bartholo- 

Patrick's father, James, the first of the line, 
married Elizabeth Jermain, daughter of Thomas Jermain 
of Great Valley Mills, Paoli, Pennsylvania. 

I have purposely stressed material which I 
thought might be of interest to the reader and have 
sought to give a picture of the times, and have omit- 
ted specific reference to deeds, wills and other 
sources of my information which are not of general

In the book entitled THE SCOTTISH CLANS AND THEIR 
TARTANS, we find the family Anderson, Sons of Andrew, 
Clan Aindreas, called by these names among the High- 
landers, until this day. The old Celtic form of the 
name is Andermas, and up to the present time the An- 
nual Andermas Fair is still held in Scotland, gener- 
ally known as the Clan Ross. In the Ancient Genealog- 
ical history, however, they were known by the name 
Clan Anrias and the history of this Clan commences 
with a charter for lands of Gairloch given by Willis, 
Earl of Ross, Lord of Skye, to Paul MacTyre in the 
year 1366, being witnessed by Alexander, Bishop of 
Ross, Hergone, brother of Earl William, and Henry the 
Seneschal and others. Robertson mentions, however, 
that in the Earl of Haddington's Collections, he found 
an entry made in the year 1220, during the reign of 
Alexander II of a "charter to Ferquhard," who was son 
of Gille Anrias from whom the Clan originally took its 
name; the same hailing from Apple Cross. For services 
rendered to Alexander II, Ferquhard, or otherwise 
known as Fear char, was knighted by the king, and in 
1234 was created Earl of Ross. He founded at that 
time the Abbey of Fearn in Ross-shire. His son, Earl 
William was one of the Scottish nobles who, under 
Alexander II, bound themselves to make no peace with 
England in which the Prince and Chiefs of Wales were 
not included. 

The Clan had adopted by this .time their music, 
badge and tartan. The Clan pipe march was "The Earl 
of Ross's March"; the badge, the Juniper, and the tar- 
tan, red field transversed by three broad dark blue 
stripes, two narrow green stripes, three broad green 
stripes and two sets of narrow blue stripes, the cen- 
ter stripe being slightly heavier than the other two. 
Again the three broad green stripes and the two nar- 
row green stripes. 

The fighting force of this original Clan in 1745 
was 500 men. About the year 1732, the family divided 
into several clans having their own castles and es- 
tates, four of which adopted the motto "Stand Sure," 
and for a crest a seeded Scotchfir tree on mount. 



The first Anderson in this country, James, is 
said to have emigrated in 1707 from the Isle of the 
Skye, Scotland. This island is separated from the 
mainland by a strait narrow enough to be crossed by 
a ferry, and contains some of the highest mountains 
and most picturesque scenery in Scotland. According 
to a Scotchman I know who comes from the island, 
there are many Andersons still living there, and all 
the men are over six feet tall. 

Tradition has it that James was seventeen years 
of age when he ran away from home to come to this 
country with his brothers, George and William, but 
against his father's will. It is said that he fled 
from his home with nothing but his clothing - even 
without his coat. According to the custom of that 
day, the captain of the ship was recompensed for the 
passage of any who could not pay, by a settler of 
this country, who thereupon became entitled to the 
services of the immigrant for five years, during 
which time he was provided with his keep, and at the 
end of that period given fifty acres of land. 

James was bound out to service to Thomas Jer- 
main (or Jerman), a Quaker preacher who operated a 
mill in Great Valley, not far from Paoli station, on 
the Pennsylvania Railroad. Jermain obtained one of 
the first licenses to operate a mill in the province. 
All mills had originally been operated by the Pro- 
prietor, and there arose protests by settlers against 
monopoly and the "excessive" charges made for grind- 
ing their grain, and Perm thereupon granted several 
private licenses. 

Jermain arrived in Philadelphia in March 1699, 
and there practiced his trade as a glover. He came 
from a farm on the River Towys in Wales. In 1701 he 
bought 300 acres in the Paoli Valley for thirty-six 
pounds. Thomas Jermain had an attractive daughter 
named Elizabeth, and she and James Anderson fell in 
love. The father had other plans for her, however, 
and wanted her to marry Enoch Walker, whose father, 
Lewis, owned a pretentious home nearby, called "Re- 
hobeth," which he built in 1695. (We are descended 
also from Enoch Walker through another line - see 

Dr. James Anderson's wife.) 

An old mill still operates on the site of the 
original, and belonged to Richard Haughton, son of 
the former rector of the Church of the Redeemer, Bryn 
Mawr, where Dick and I used to sing in the choir when 
we were boys. Mr. Haughton died recently. The mill 
has been in operation 240 years and now produces the 
"Great Valley Mill Products," - flour and cereals 
noted for their high quality. The high bank on which 
the mill stands has been made into one of the most 
beautiful rock gardens in the country, and flower 
lovers come from great distances to see it. 

When the five-year service was up in 1712, James 
Anderson and Elizabeth Jermain eloped and went to 
live on Pickering Creek in what is now Charlestown 
Township, Chester County, beyond Valley Forge. Ac- 
cording to tradition they lived in a cave or dugout, 
and made moccasins for the Indians. Later, they 
built a one-room log cabin. Soon there was a recon- 
ciliation with the father, and he helped James pur- 
chase 340 acres in 1713. This was located along the 
Pickering Creek near Phoenixville, and included the 
site of the cave. 

When I was a boy, I visited the old Anderson 
homestead on which Cousin Jim Anderson was then liv- 
ing. He was my mother's second cousin, his father 
being Joseph Everett Anderson, brother of Dr. James, 
my great-grandfather. Cousin Jim took me over the 
fence into the adjoining Pennypacker farm, that field 
being originally part of the Anderson farm, and showed 
me a surveyor' s mark on- a tree which had been made by 
his nephew, who was a surveyor, and which located the 
site of the cave. Cousin Jim said that his father 
told him that a mound was still there in his youth. 

Our first Anderson immigrant, James, was said 
to have been over six feet tall, with red hair and 
light blue-gray eyes. Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker 
says in his memoirs that James could neither read nor 

James's grandson, Isaac, wrote a history of that 
general locality, and says of his grandparents' day: 
"The Indians were fellow inhabitants, and on very 
friendly terms. An Indian woman has been known to 
suckle and nurse a white infant while its mother went 
to visit her relatives three miles off. One of said 

infants was the child of James Anderson. Such was 
the confidence of the first settlers in the aborig- 

James and his wife are probably buried in the 
graveyard of old St. Peter's Church in the Great 
Valley, of which he was vestryman. According to 
family tradition he is said to have imported clover 
and garlic (!) into this country - a blessing and a 

Harry Emerson Wildes, the historian, in his book 
VALLEY FORGE, recounts the romance of James Anderson 
with the miller' s daughter: 

"Valley Forge itself began with an elopement. 
The story following traditional romantic patterns, 
richly merits novelistic treatment, for a poor in- 
dentured servant, bought by a crusty miller, won the 
daughter of the rich, conservative Welsh Quaker fam- 
ily, ran off with her to break hitherto untilled farm 
land, built a home in the wilderness, achieved suc- 
cess, and gained eventual forgiveness. 

"In 1713#, the year following Holstein' s arrival 
at Swedesford, Thomas Jerman, Quaker preacher who was 
nicknamed 'The Thrifty Miller' , went into Philadel- 
phia to buy a sleigh. There he found a ship just ar- 
rived from England, bringing, among other passengers, 
a red-headed, twenty-year old-"- Scotch boy. The man 
to whom this James Anderson was indentured, desired 
to sell the lad's services, and Jerman, attracted by 
his bright personality, bought the boy for little 
more than the five pounds' transportation cost. The 
thrifty miller took James Anderson upcountry to his 
Great Valley Mill, the first inland grist mill to be 
licensed after Penn gave up his mill monopoly. 

"Quick-witted and pleasant-spoken, laughing Jim 
Anderson worked faithfully and hard, though the seri- 
ous Welsh Quakers thought him frivolous. Elizabeth, 
the elder daughter of the Jermans, was captivated by 
his charm. A few months after his arrival, the two 
were deep in love. Jerman was disappointed; he had 
intended Elizabeth for Enoch Walker, son of the pio- 
neer of Rehobeth, hoping that thus "Rehobeth" and the 
Great Valley Mill might be united into one great 
property . 




"Anderson and Elizabeth found no encouragement. 
As soon as Jim' s service had expired, they fled in 
the moonlight down the trail that led toward Hol- 
stein' s Swedes' ford, past Walker's farm, and over 
the fields that now comprise the Valley Forge Park 
reservation. Once safely through the narrow pass be- 
yond the present site of Valley Forge, they took up 
three hundred acres of unbroken hilly land. 

"Only the Indians lived nearby, but these, 
charmed by the friendliness of the young Scot and 
his bride, befriended the elopers. 'Sky', their young 
Lenni Lenape neighbor, married them by Indian rites, 
and showed them how to make a hut. It was a log house 
with one room, one door, and a window, and it was in 
a dangerous position, for each night the wolves 
prowled in the neighborhood. Even later, when Ander- 
son had bought sheep, the snow about the tight-walled 
sheepfold was trampled nightly by packs of hungry 
wolves. For long months', Jim Anderson slept with a 
loaded gun by his bedside to protect his flocks 
against unusual attack. 

"'Sky' gave fluent counsel on how to care for 
crops, but Anderson preferred to follow better and 
more modern methods. When "Sky" showed how the In- 
dians cleared ground by kindling fires to kill the 
tree roots, Anderson urged that the roots be grubbed 
out before seed was sown. The cost of repairing one 
plow broken on a stump, he said, was greater than the 
added cost of complete clearing. By so caring for 
the land, however, the fields would be immediately as 
fit for cultivation as they would be after twenty 
years of inefficient Indian practices. "Sky's" ad- 
vice that children should be thrown into the creek 
daily before dawn to make them hardy was likewise 
disregarded, though Elizabeth left the young Ander- 
sons in Indian care whenever she rode back to see 
her people. 

"The families were friendly again, for after 
Elizabeth' s elopement, the thrifty miller had married 
her younger sister, Mary, to the favored Enoch Walker. 
When the harvests were gathered, therefore, and the 
grain flailed, Elizabeth rode back into the Great 
Valley to take the wheat to be ground." 


On October 8, 1701, William Penn patented to 
Griffith Jones and fifteen others a tract of land in 
Charlestown Township, Chester County, containing 
5358 acres, (Patent Book A-2-208, Philadelphia). Of 
this land Griffith Jones became legally seized of 340 
acres. (Partition dated December 10, 1705 - Book 
F-6-5.) By the deed dated February 6, 1709 he con- 
veyed the said 340 acres to Alexander Ross, who, with 
his wife, Catherine, by Deed, June 2, 1713, conveyed 
it to James Anderson. By his deed dated December 11, 
1740, James Anderson of Charlestown, Chester County, 
yeoman, conveyed it to his eldest son, Patrick Ander- 
son, who then assumed an existing mortgage on the 
property, (Deed Book F-317, Chester County). On May 
6, 1774 Patrick Anderson of the Township of Charles- 
town, Chester County, yeoman, for 637 pounds conveyed 
to John Custer of the Township of Perkiomen and Skip- 
pack, Philadelphia County, fuller, and Mathias Penny- 
packer of the same place, yeoman, all that tract with 
the saw mill thereon in Charlestown, by lands of Ed- 
ward Lane and William Moore, Esq., on Pickering 
Creek. Patrick Anderson' s other land, containing 
fifty-one acres was part of the above 340 acres by 
deed recorded in Deed Book N-2-534 - Chester County. 

The first house of James Anderson was upon the 
Eastern margin of the original tract. It was a log 
house or hovel with a door and one window and under- 
pinned with stone. Next he excavated a cellar 
against this building. Some years later his son, 
Patrick Anderson, built a stone house of superior 
structure and finish adjoining the cabin. It con- 
tained a room and kitchen with two rooms over, and 
above this a loft. It had no finished ceiling. The 
front was of dressed stone. Patrick's son, Isaac, 
tore down the log cabin and built an addition to the 
stone portion. Isaac's son, Joseph E., removed the 
stone structure built by Patrick and rebuilt an ad- 
dition to correspond with his father's building. 

(From Isaac W. Pennypacker) 

The information about the collateral descend- 
ants of JAMES ANDERSON, first of the line to come to 
this country is incomplete; same is true of descend- 


ants of his son, Patrick; the only information I have 
been able to obtain is as follows: 

James Anderson, b. Scotland, 1690, m. Elizabeth Jer- 








George went "west." Governor Pennypacker told 
me that there are a number of Andersons in Cumberland 
Valley descended from a George Anderson. This was 
considered "west" in the early days. Among his de- 
scendants is William Perm Lloyd. George was lieuten- 
ant in Patrick Anderson's Company in the French and 
Indian War, William Moore' s regiment (See account of 
Isaac Anderson) . 


Patrick Anderson, b. July 24, 1719, d. March 1793 
First wife: Hannah Martin 


Hannah eloped with Job Harvey. Her father heard 
them eloping and chased them on horseback, but they 
hid in the woods and escaped. 

Rebecca also eloped. Both were cut off in their 
father' s will. 

Second wife: Elizabeth Morris 



Third wife: Ann Beaton 



Ascenath, married Joseph Quay 


James, and two who died in infancy 

Julius went to Stonington, Conn., where there 
are a number of his descendants living today. 


James' and Elizabeth's son, Patrick, was the 
first white child born in Charlestown Township, 
Chester County. 

He lived on the farm all of his life except 
when he was sent to Philadelphia to be educated; 
upon his return, he taught school in a building built 
on his father's farm for the purpose. Patrick was 
Captain of a Company of Chester County men who served 
in the French and Indian War. 

At the time of the Revolution, the Assembly 
sent a Captain's Commission to him, and, although an 
old man, Patrick accepted it, called together his 
old soldiers, and the entire company of fifty-six 
men enlisted. He borrowed the money to equip the 
company by mortgaging his farm to Matthias Penny- 
packer, who owned the adjoining farm. It is said 
that when the war was over he could not pay off the 
mortgage, so he liquidated his debt by conveying to 
Pennypacker that part of the farm which included the 
ground on which the original cave was located. This, 
however, is denied by Governor Pennypacker in his 
Memoirs . Patrick made a list of the equipment which 
he had provided for his Company and presented his 
claim to the Continental Congress, but he was never 
reimbursed. His Company was known as the Chester 
County Minute Men of 1775. 

In March 1776, the British Army of 14,000 men 
camped in Schuylkill Township along Nutts Road, and 
the Hessians descended on the farm and destroyed the 
furniture and slaughtered the cattle. Some of the 
logs of the cabin were afterwards built into the at- 
tic of the present homestead and still show marks of 
blood of the slaughtered animals. The Red Coats cut 
the feather beds, and feathers flew all over the 
house and stuck to the blood. When the family heard 
that the Red Coats were coming, they hid their sil- 
ver in the well, and their grain under the barn 
floor. The family and their slaves concealed them- 
selves in the woods along French Creek. Patrick 
presented a claim to the Continental Congress for 
damages to his home amounting to pounds 303-5. 3-d 6. 


For some reason or other, there were a table, a mir- 
ror, and a picture of Washington, which were not de- 
stroyed. The mirror was in the possession of Gover- 
nor Penny packer and is now in his old home at 
Schwenksville, and the table was owned by Cousin 
Sarah Anderson but I do not know what became of it 
after her death. The mirror belonged to Patrick' s 
wife, Elizabeth, before her marriage. She was the 
sister of the James Anderson who was the last of the 
name to live on the old farm. 

The Hessians also raided the home of Edward Lane 
and of Jacob Pennypacker nearby, making off with their 
blankets and bed-linen. 

Most of the family knew Cousin Sarah and visited 
her in Phoenixville. She was a maiden lady of dis- 
tinguished appearance and an attractive personality. 
She owned the old farm, and had always intended to 
leave it to her brother James' son, Isaac. Unfortun- 
ately, he died of blood poisoning from a splinter 
which he got in his hand from a pitchfork handle. 
Cousin Sarah left the farm to her nephew, Lemuel 
Braddock Schofield, Esq., who is the son of her sis- 
ter, Mary, who had married Albert Schofield. Brad 
Schofield is a prominent lawyer of Philadelphia, was 
formerly Director of Public Safety of the City of 
Philadelphia, and recently Director of the Federal 
Department of Immigration and Naturalization. 

Patrick Anderson was married three times, once 
in Christ Church in Philadelphia. His second wife 
was Elizabeth Morris, mother of Isaac. She died when 
she was only 28 years old, on March 7, 1764. It is 
through her that the family are eligible to member- 
ship in the Huguenot Society. She was the daughter 
of Isaac Morris and Anna Bartholomew; Anna was the 
daughter of John Bartholomew whose father, George, 
came to this country about 1680 from England. He was 
at one time proprietor of the Blue Anchor Inn, situ- 
ated at Dock and Arch Streets, on the waterfront of 
Philadelphia and the oldest Inn in the province. 

Patrick' s third wife, Ann Beaton, was the mother 
of Aseneth, who married Joseph Quay, grandfather of 
Senator Matthew Stanley Quay. 

Patrick Anderson was a prominent man in Chester 
County and a leader in the revolt against the tyran- 
ny of Great Britain. He served on the First Committee 


of Safety of Chester County, of which Anthony Wayne 
was chairman, under the law passed by the Continental 
Congress in 1774 "to protest the Continental inter- 
ests and prevent the importation of goods from Eng- 
land . » 

In March 1776, he was appointed Senior Captain 
of the Pennsylvania Battalion of Musketry in spite of 
his age, and "although his hair was whitening with 
advancing years." He accepted the appointment, en- 
listed a company and fought two years of the Revolu- 
tion, until the impairment of his health compelled 
his retirement. Patrick served under Col. Samuel J. 
Atlee in July 1776, when the Battalion marched to re- 
inforce Washington on Long Island, N. Y. At that 
time he described his men as "without shirts, shoes 
or stocking, and could not be kept clean." They took 
part in the Battle of Long Island, were stationed 
near Flatbush, and it was reported that Patrick An- 
derson' s Company behaved gallantly in battle. In 
fact, his Battalion is reported to have been the only 
one which repulsed the enemy. Col. Atlee was cap- 
tured, and his Lieut. Colonel, Caleb Pusey, was 
killed by Patrick's side. He thus became the rank- 
ing officer of the Battalion and assumed command. 
Patrick was commissioned Major of Anthony Wayne's 
Regiment of Chester County Minute Men in 1776. He 
wrote to Benjamin Franklin on September 22, 1776, 
that after the battle he had under his command 200 
men, but that at the time of the writing all but 
eighty-three had deserted, and that he had sent a 
detachment to arrest them. The men lost their bag- 
gage during the battle, and did not receive their 
pay; consequently, were so disgruntled that they 
went home . 

Patrick took part in the disastrous defeat of 
Lafayette's army at Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, 
and most of his company were captured, but he es- 
caped. He also participated in the battles of Brandy- 
wine and German town. 

He was a prominent Mason, having been Master of 
Lodge No. 8 in 1760, which was the first country 
lodge warranted in the colony. He is reported to 
have organized the first Masonic Lodge in the Conti- 
nental Army. 

Major Patrick Anderson served in the Pennsyl- 


vania Assembly from 1778 to 1781, and took an active 
part in the impeachment of Judge Francis Hopkinson. 
In 1781 he was appointed one of the Commissioners 
having, charge of Navigation in the Schuylkill River. 
This was an important avenue of transportation to 
Philadelphia. When in the Assembly, he voted against 
a Bill for the Abolition of Slavery in the Colony. 

He had an old slave named Ben whom he set free. 
Ben, who was very old, is said to have gone out to 
the Slaves' Burying Ground on the farm, and thrown up 
his hat in the air and shouted praise to the Lord for 
his freedom, and proclaimed in a loud voice, that he 
now was ready to be taken to his heavenly rest. 

Patrick was credited with having built the first 
saw mill in the colony. 

One unusual characteristic may be noted, he had 
a double row of teeth front and back. It is reported 
that he died of "palsey" from which he suffered for 
several years. 

Patrick' s descendants maintain a pew in his hon- 
or in the Valley Forge Memorial Chapel. It bears a 
memorial tablet which reads as follows: 

"To the Glory of God and in memory of Patrick

Major in Wayne's Battalion of Minute Men, 1775, 

Senior Captain in Command of the Pennsylvania 
Battalion of Musketry, 1776, 

Member of the Assembly of Pennsylvania, 1778, 


Patrick Anderson was buried in old St. Peter's Church- 
yard in Paoli Valley, where he was a Vestryman from 
1774 to 1780. 

The family placed a bronze tablet on the walls 
of the church, bearing the inscription: 

"Patrick Anderson, July 24, 1719, to March 1793. 

"Captain, French and Indian War. 

"Major - Wayne's Battalion; Member of Pennsyl- 
vania Legislature 1778-1781. Member of the 
Vestry of St. Peter's Church 1774-1780. 

"Buried in St. Peter's Churchyard." 



Isaac Anderson was the oldest son of Patrick. He 
is, perhaps, the most colorful figure in the Anderson 
line. When he was a youth, he was a great favorite 
with the Indians, who still abounded in the Chester 
Valley, and he accompanied them on their hunting and 
fishing excursions, and family tradition says that 
they frequently went fox hunting together. Isaac was 
born in the old homestead on November 23, 1760, and 
the story has been handed down that he was so small 
at birth, that he could be held in the palm of the 
hand. He grew to be over six feet four inches tall, 
and a man of extraordinary strength. As a youth, he 
was the ■ wrestling champion of the valley. When he 
was only fifteen years of age, he acted as a courier 
for General Washington at Valley Forge and took mes- 
sages to the Continental Congress which was then sit- 
ting at York. 

V/hen he became nineteen, on May 24, 1779, he was 
made 1st Lieutenant in the 6th Company of the 5th 
Btn. of the Chester County Militia. He took part in 
the Battle of Warren Tavern in the Fall of 1777. At 
that time he was Ensign of 5th Battalion of the Ches- 
ter County Militia (Pa. Archives 5th series Va. pp. 94 
and 95) . 

Warren Tavern is near Paoli. Here General Wayne 
was secreted in the woods, with a detachment of about 
1500 men watching General Howe (who was camped about 
four miles distant) , expecting to surprise the Brit- 
ish, when they began to march, and cut them off from 
their supplies. Instead, the British surprised Wayne 
and inflicted grave casualties and he was compelled 
to retreat in haste. 

It is reported that on one of his forays, in 
company with two other men, he captured a very valu- 
able white horse from a British officer and they 
brought it to Valley Forge to present to General 
Washington. Their Commander, Captain Bartholomew, 
took the horse away from them and presented it to 
the General in his own name. This caused feeling 
between the Anderson and Bartholomew families, which 
continued during that generation. Bartholomew was 
Isaac's uncle. This horse may have been the model 
used for the painting of George Washington by Col. 


John Trumball of Yale College - a steel engraving of 
which I have. 

If you should drive out Montgomery Avenue through 
Valley Forge, and turn left at the top of the hill, 
you would come to the Anderson homestead on the right, 
opposite the estate of William Clothier. If you 
should keep straight ahead on Montgomery Avenue you 
would pass the imposing home of the former Judge Wil- 
liam Moore on the right. It is known as Moore Hall 
and has been recently restored. 

It is said that Isaac was delegated by his father 
to go with a group of young men to the various homes 
in the vicinity and collect all available arms for the 
Company of soldiers his father was raising for service 
in the Revolution. They went to Judge Moore' s home 
and found him sitting on the porch, with his gouty 
foot all bandaged up, resting it on a stool. Isaac 
entered the house and collected available arms, in- 
cluding a jewelled sword which had been presented to 
the Judge by the King of England in appreciation of 
his service as representative of the Crown in this 
country. Judge Moore protested the taking of the 
sword and asked to see it. He then took it out of 
its scabbard and broke it over his well knee, and 
threw down the blade, saying: "There 1 Take that if 
you are anxious to fight, but you have no business to 
steal my plate." 

The long history of the family in the Democratic 
party started with Isaac. He was an ardent Jeffer- 
sonian Democrat, and was elected twice to Congress 
when Jefferson was President, from 1803 to 1807. He 
supported the Administration in all its measures, and 
voted in favor of the Bill to free all Negroes born 
in the District of Columbia, and to impose a tax of 
$10.00 a head upon all importation of slaves, and to 
limit the time in which all importations of Negroes 
could be made. His name heads the list of Congress- 
men who voted for the Louisiana Purchase. 

Isaac was strongly backed as a candidate for 
Governor of the State, but failed to receive the nom- 
ination. He subsequently served as Presidential Elec- 
tor for James Monroe. It was said that before he went 
to Congress, he would put hot bread and milk poultices 
on his hands to make them whiter and softer. 

Isaac and his wife, Mary Lane, both became mem- 


bers of the Methodist Society in 1780. It is report- 
ed that Bishop Asbury preached from their farm and 
over 2000 people came from miles around to hear him. 
The pioneer Methodist leader, George Main, received 
them into the Society. Patrick had erected a school 
house on a corner of the farm, where the children of 
the family and the neighborhood received their pri- 
mary education and Methodist meetings of the Society 
were held in this school house. Isaac became a local 
preacher and on one occasion he preached in the Grove 
Methodist Church, West Chester, and a crowd of people 
gathered from miles around to hear him. The sheds 
were filled and the horses were hitched to the fences 
for a long distance along the highway. 

A portrait was made of Isaac when he was in Con- 
gress, and one of his descendants, Governor Samuel W. 
Pennypacker, had a steel engraving of it made. A num- 
ber of the family have copies. 

He and his wife Mary had eleven children. Isaac 
was very self-willed, and in the latter part of his 
life he had a falling out with his wife and she went 
to live with her son, Dr. Isaac Anderson on Coopers- 
town Road, Delaware County. Through the efforts of 
the children they were later reconciled. It is said 
that the basis of the dispute was the fact that his 
wife refused to wear any but plain clothes after she 
became a Methodist and especially because she would 
not dress up when they went to Washington to attend 
the Sessions of Congress. 

Mary Lane was said to have been an exceptional- 
ly beautiful girl and remained a handsome woman all 
of her life. It is said of her that she was a strict 
disciplinarian; that she would break the ice in win- 
ter in a small creek nearby, and bathe her children 
in the icy water. In spite of the Spartan treatment, 
however, several of them later died of tuberculosis. 

She was a descendant of the Lanes who estab- 
lished the St. James Episcopal Church at Evansburg, 
in the Perkiomen Valley. Her father, Edward Lane, 
was a member of Captain Anderson's Company in General 
Braddock' s Expedition against Fort Duquesne in 1755, 
and he escaped without injury. 

Mary' s mother was Sarah Richardson, grand- 
daughter of the famous Samuel Richardson of whom I 
shall write later. 


As an anecdote of Isaac's strength it is told 
that he got into a fight and broke his right wrist 
by a blow on his opponent. He thereupon continued 
the fight and defeated his antagonist with his left 

Isaac and Mary were buried in the Anderson fam- 
ily graveyard which is part of the original farm. It 
is surrounded by a high wall and adjoins the highway 
opposite the Anderson farm. A number of the Ander- 
son family and their slaves are buried there. 

It is interesting to note that the old Forge at 
Valley Forge was always supposed to be the black- 
smith shop which formerly stood on the State Highway 
near the Washington Inn. In 1802 Isaac Anderson 
wrote a history of the neighborhood, a copy of which 
was recently discovered in the Pennsylvania Histori- 
cal Society, in which he said that the Forge was in 
the Creek Valley between Mount Misery and Mount Joy, 
about a mile above the mouth of Valley Creek. Exca- 
vations were subsequently conducted, and the founda- 
tion of the forge found where he had located it. 
Isaac is reported to have built the first lime kiln 
in the county. 

My Aunt Corona told me the tale about Isaac that 
when he was acting as courier for General Washington 
he got into trouble and complained to his father, 
Patrick, that he had bad luck. Patrick replied: 
"Isaac, my son, care makes luck." That became a 
family slogan .

A member of the Philadelphia bar, Edgar Jamison 
Pershing, late Captain Army Service Corps, Judge Ad- 
vocate Generals Dept., in 1925 compiled the history 
of the Lost Legion from the Pension Office Records 
in Washington and from the Department of Archives of 
Canada, and the war records in the British Museum 

It was in 1781, the last year of the Revolution 
when Cornwallis had shut himself up in Yorktown. 

In the West, however, the pioneers of Pennsyl- 
vania, Western Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky were be- 
ing harassed by the Indian allies of Great Britain 


led by renegade colonials and British officers. 

General George Rogers Clark, of Virginia, organ- 
ized an expedition against the Delaware, Shawnee and 
Sandusky redskins in Ohio, the plans for which had 
been approved by General Washington. 

When General Clark's request to join the expedi- 
tion reached Westmoreland County, Pa., the Rangers 
agreed to go with him if they were placed under Col. 
Archibald Lochry's command. 

Having received a favorable reply from Col. 
Lochry, General Clark immediately moved his forces 
from Virginia through to Wheeling where he awaited 
the arrival of Lochry. 

LT. ISAAC ANDERSON of Lochry's command kept a 
daily journal, and from this it is learned that on 
August 1, (1781) , the Westmoreland Rangers "met at 
Col. Carnahan's in order to form a body of men to 
join General Clark on the expedition against the In- 

On the 2nd day following, eighty-three men left 
Carnahan's, eleven miles from Hannastown, and marched 
under command of Col. Lochry to Maracles Mill. 

On the following day the command crossed the 
Y oughioghenny River and marched for three days across 
country to Wheeling Fort . . . which was reached on 
August 7. 

There, to Lochry's surprise, they found that 
General Clark had started with his command down the 
river just twelve hours previously, leaving word that 
Lochry was to follow them. 

Col. Lochry immediately dispatched a quarter- 
master and an officer down river with a message to 

At this time the two forces were only about 
twelve miles apart and Clark replied immediately 
that he supposed Lochry had met with the same "dis- 
appointment from the populace" and desertions from 
his company as Clark had, and hence been delayed, 
and continued: 

"The following plan is proposed. I have aug- 
mented the command of Mr. Wallace with 8 alert men, 
furnished with 15 days provisions for the whole of 
your troops, and there will be left at the lower 
point of the 3rd island below Middle island for your 
reception, one large horse boat and a sufficiency of 


small ditto with what you will be able to collect on 
your passage, camp kettles, etc., under the protec- 
tion of a few men. I will move on slowly ... and you 
will use the greatest industry as you cannot possibly 
pass us without our knowledge. ..." 

On the 2nd day following, Lochry started his men 
down river in seven boats sending the horses over- 
land to Grave Creek. ... They did not reach "Three 
Islands" until August 15. There they found Major 
Creacroft with six men and the promised supplies. 
Creacroft immediately left Clark. He was captured 
by Indians a couple of days later. 

The next day Lochry sent Captain Shannon ahead 
with a letter to Clark: and during the next three 
days started moving his Rangers down river in the 
heavy canoes. Navigation was very difficult owing 
to low water. 

Anderson's diary reports "Aug. 17. 2 men were 
sent out to hunt who never returned." His account 

"We met with 2 of Shannon's men who told us they 
had put to shore to cook below the mouth of the Sci- 
otta, where Shannon sent them and a sergeant out to 
hunt. When they got about half a mile in the woods 
they heard a number of guns fire which they supposed 
to be the Indians firing on the rest of the party, 
and they immediately took up the river to meet us, 
but unfortunately, the sergeant's knife dropped on 
the ground and it ran directly through his foot, and 
he died of the wound in a few minutes. We sailed all 

The surmise of the two men was right. Shannon 
and his party were taken prisoner by the Indians, 
Shannon was searched and Lochry' s letter to Clark de- 
tailing their lack of food and ammunition, etc., was 
found. This determined the Indians, who were under 
command of the famous Girty brothers, to attack the 
Lochry party, when they were forced to come ashore 
to hunt and forage. The progress of the expedition 
was • very slow owing to low water and their ignorance 
of the channel of the Ohio. The account of their end 
is related in Isaac Anderson's diary, which is con- 
sidered the authority on the subject. He states: 

"Aug. 24, (1781) Col. Lochry ordered the boats 
to land on the Indian shore about 10 miles below the 




















































mouth of the Great Meyamee (Miami) river to cook pro- 
visions and cut grass for the horses, when we were 
fired upon by a party of Indians from the bank. We 
took to our boats, expecting to cross the river, and 
were fired on by another party in a number of canoes 
and soon we became a prey to them. They killed the 
Colonel and a number more after they were prisoners. 
The number killed was about 40." 

The rest were taken prisoners and were kept in 
Indian towns and finally sent to Detroit where they 
were detained until, after the end of the war. 


Our great-grandfather, James Anderson, was a 
physician. He purchased the St. George's Inn which 
is on the north side of Montgomery Avenue, At Ard- 
more, at the north end of Anderson Avenue, which runs 
under the Pennsylvania Railroad at the station. Here, 
the stage-coaches stopped before the Revolution. Dr. 
Anderson converted the Inn into his home. The name, 
"St. Georges," still appears on the gate posts. 

James had fifteen children. His first wife was 
Sarah Thomas, descendant of Reese Thomas and Barbara 
Aubrey, of whom I will tell later. Mother told me 
that Sarah was one of five beautiful Thomas sisters. 
One married John B. Roberts, former president of the 
Pennsylvania Railroad, and one married Owen Jones, a 
prominent citizen and owner of a beautiful colonial 
homestead in Wynnewood. Sarah died after the birth 
of her ninth child, and Dr. Anderson subsequently 
married Mary Wilson, who bore him six children. 

Our grandfather Isaac was the oldest son. When 
the fourteenth child arrived, he was named Ultimus 
Adjutor, meaning the "last one." They were mistaken, 
however, as a couple of years later, a girl came 
along, and she was called Corona - the "crown" of the 
family . 

Dr. Anderson with Dennis Kelly purchased a large 
tract of land in Lower Merion, in the location of 
what is now Ardmore and Haverford. 

It is said that Dennis subsequently complained 
that he was over-persuaded and was sorry that he had 
made the bargain and the doctor bought him out. 

The homestead was originally on the Old Lancas- 
ter Road, previously called the Conestoga Road. The 


first mention of it is about 1730, when the owner, 
Richard Hughes, set up a tavern there, and hung out 
the sign "Thrree Tuns." This was the time when the 
road to Lancaster was laid out. Francis Holton was 
the successor of Hughes in 1757, and changed the 
name to "Prince of Wales." Afterwards it became the 
home of Philip Syng, goldsmith, and Treasurer of 
Philadelphia County. Here he is said to have sold 
watches which he hung in his window. He eventually 
sold it to Captain William McAffee, who re-opened it 
as a hotel and named it the "Green Tree." It was 
subsequently run by Godfrey Lamhoff who sold it to 
Dr. James Anderson, with 104 acres, in 1811. My 
great Aunt Corona told me it was then known as "St. 
Georges," which is the name which the Homestead still 
bears. Dr. Joseph Anderson, grandson of Dr. James, 
now lives there . 

Our great-Aunt Corona, Uncle Joe (a doctor) and 
Uncle Adjie lived on the Homestead in Ardmore when I 
was a boy, and I went to visit them often. After my 
uncles died I spent a good many evenings with Aunt 
Corona, to whom I was devoted. Uncle Joe was tall 
and handsome. Uncle Adjie was a rolling stone in the 
earlier part of his life. He was a man of great 
strength, and ran the Anderson Farm during the later 
years. Aunt Corona was a woman of distinguished 
character. She described her father as tall, hand- 
some, gentle and refined; very gentle with her, but 
a domineering character, and strictly a man of his 

She told me of the time when my Grandfather 
Isaac had broken his leg while wrestling. It appears 
that his father had promised him a licking if he 
wrestled again. They were taking in the hay when a 
shower came up and they went into the barn for pro- 
tection, and the wrestling match occurred on the barn 
floor. The father was sent for, and he reminded his 
boy that he had promised him a licking, so he took a 
cornstalk and gave him a few blows before setting his 
leg. The licking did not hurt the boy very much, but 
his father kept his word. 

Mr. Samuel Duncan, of Ardmore, who knew my Great 
Grandfather, told me that he drove around in a gig 
and an old horse with one stiff back leg, and it never 
varied its gait. An old man had taken ill suddenly 


in Merion Square (Gladwyrme) and the doctor was sent 
for. Before he arrived, the patient had a turn for 
the worse, and one of the family rode his horse hast- 
ily for the doctor and intercepted him riding in his 
gig at the usual slow pace. The messenger is report- 
ed to have said: "Doctor, unless you hurry, you will 
not get there before the old man dies." The doctor 
is said to have replied: "Well, the old man has 
lived for ninety years, and I reckon he will live 
until I get there. Get up." 

My aunt recounted an incident concerning the 
Rev. Mr. Smith, pastor of the Methodist Church in 
Merion Square, and a circuit rider. He received, 
when he was paid, $200.00 a year, and, from time to 
time, food supplied by "donation parties," with which 
he had to support his family, and maintain a horse 
and carriage to reach his other charges. Dr. Ander- 
son sent him word to come over and get a load of hay 
and corn for his horse, as they were harvesting. The 
family had an outside oven in which they baked bread, 
pies and cakes for the week, and while the minister 
was there, Mrs. Anderson came out with a basket filled 
with food and gave it to him. He said, "Thank you, 
Sister Anderson. I knew the Lord would provide." In 
reply to her inquiry he told her that the congrega- 
tion had overlooked paying the last installment of 
his salary, and that they had eaten the last food in 
the house that morning, which had greatly worried his 
wife, but that he had assured her that the Lord would 
provide. Such was the faith of the pioneer preacher. 

Dr. Anderson had the reputation of doing many 
kind deeds throughout the neighborhood. He was the 
family advisor to almost every family who lived with- 
in the distance of his horse and gig. He was a great 
friend of Benjamin Rush, who was the head surgeon in 
the Continental Army, and also of Charles Thompson, 
the Secretary of the Continental Congress. 

I have a statement written by him of an event 
which took place at the Mount Pleasant Methodist 
Meeting House (now Radnor Church, near Rosemont) , on 
August 5, 1849. He drove the family up to Church in 
a "Germantown" wagon, with a pair of horses, and when 
he arrived, one of the Elders of the Church stepped 
up and said: "I am sorry, Brother Anderson, we can- 
not allow your daughter to come into church." When 


asked why, he was told that she had a wreath of arti- 
ficial flowers sewed on the inside of her bonnet, 
which was contrary to the discipline of the Church. 
An argument took place, and he appealed to the Minis- 
ter on the ground that his daughter was not a member 
of the Church. Dr. Cooper, the Minister, said he was 
sorry, but the brethren were acting in accordance 
with the discipline of the Church. "Give tickets to 
none that wear high heads, enormous bonnets, ruffles 
or wigs." Dr. Anderson took hold of a gold key sus- 
pended on the guard chain on the Minister' s vest and 
said: "What is this?" The Minister said: "That is 
necessary to wind my watch," but refused them en- 
trance without consent of the brethren. His wife 
then became hysterical and asked to be taken home at 
once. He turned to the pastor ana said: "My wife 
considers herself insulted and requests me to take 
her home." To which Dr. Cooper replied: "Well." 

I have seen a large iron key that the Doctor 
used to pry out an aching tooth, as there were no 
dentists in those days. It is said to have been ef- 
fective, if not painless. 

Dr. Anderson died, leaving an estate appraised 
at over $100,000. There was a law suit between the 
children of the first wife, and the second wife, 
which was decided in favor of his widow and was ap- 
pealed to the Supreme Court. When I attended Law 
School it was quoted as a leading authority. It held 
that a widow can exercise her right to take her one- 
third of the estate against the will, even if exer- 
cised after the statutory litigation of one year had 
expired, if she did not know that she had the right 
of Election until the year had expired. 

His son, Rev. James Rush Anderson, wrote in his 
diary of the death of his father: 

"Mon. 31 (May) 1859. Attended Preachers Meet- 
ing. I went to father' s in the afternoon, and found 
him employed in his last earthly work, in giving his 
dying advice, counsel and charges to his family. He 
did it in a firm tone, and with a brief intermission 
between the sentences. Some of his dying words were: 
'Take God's word and be governed by it, and his bless- 
ing shall be upon you - Give your hearts to Him - 
John and Joseph! Do this: it is my command - P^ush! 
Kneel down now and offer Thanksgiving to God that He 


has kept a large and growing family from much evil' 
In a short time after this I asked him if it was his 
desire that a prayer should be offered. He replied 
f Yes' . We then kneeled down together, and had a 
solemn waiting before God. My father's responses 
were fervent, and frequent, and at the close of the 
prayer his 'Amen' was uttered with a loud and firm 
voice. These were his farewell words to his family, 
and his leave-taking of all the responsibilities of 

The diary was furnished me by Francis T . Anderson of 
the Philadelphia Bar, grandson of Rev. James Rush 

His fifteen children were: 

Mary Saul, who married John Buckman, who lived 
in Burlington, New Jersey, in a beautiful old coloni- 
al home, where I frequently visited when a young man. 
His daughter, whom we knew as Cousin Sallie Linard, 
was a famous beauty in her youth, and had a most dra- 
matic history. She fell in love with a Spaniard, but 
her mother would not allow her to marry him because 
he was a Catholic. She then married an older man, a 
Mr. Jones from Harrisburg, supposed to be a wealthy 
man, but who was insolvent when he died. He was jeal- 
ous of her, and when he went out, locked her a prison- 
er in his home. After his death she married Mr. Lin- 
ard, who separated from her after a few years. One 
of her children, Drew Jones, was a soldier of fortune, 
who took part in a revolution in Central America, and 
wandered around the world all his life. Vernie Jones 
married Admiral Passmore of the Nicaraguan Navy, and 
subsequently an Englishman by the name of Burchett 
who had two sons and a daughter. Her daughter, Meta 
Linard, was one of the most beautiful girls I ever 
knew. She had a lovely mezzo-soprano voice, and I 
can see her now, sitting at our piano at our home in 
Haverford, singing, while the men gathered around in 
adoration. She was always very gracious and thought- 
ful of everyone. Although she was very much sought 
after, she married her high school beau, Frank Wood- 
ward. They went to the State of Washington to live, 
but he did not turn out well, and she died soon after 
the birth of her son, Frank, who was sent back to 
live in Elizabeth, New Jersey, with his grandparents. 
The family has lost track of him. 


Naomi Thomas never married. 

Isaac Wesley, our grandfather. 

William Patrick, who died at the age of seven. 

Kuriah never married. 

Sarah Pennypacker, who married William Fisher. 
Their son, William Righter Fisher, was a prominent 
Philadelphia lawyer; their daughter, Naomi, married 
Dr. J. Wyldes Linn, to both of whom I was devoted. 

James Rush, a Methodist Minister, and the author 
of a work of fiction, famous at the time, entitled 
Father Braddock , a copy of which I possess. The 
story of the trials of a Methodist itinerant minister 
and his family. His grandson, Francis T. Anderson, 
is a prominent Philadelphia lawyer. 

Patrick Sydenham, died when a young man. 

Drusilla never married. Kuriah and Drusilla 
were said to have been very beautiful. Both died 
when they were young ladies. 

James Anderson' s children by Mary Wilson Ander- 
son were: 

Dr. Joseph Wilson, bachelor. 

Mathis Pennypacker, who died at the age of four. 

Andrew Jackson, a lawyer in Norristown, who mar- 
ried Helen Rambo; their daughter, Emily, married C. 
Colket Wilson of Paoli Valley. 

John Fletcher, a farmer who lived beyond the 
Gulf, and had three children: Aubrey, former presi- 
dent of the Montgomery Trust Co. of Norristown, now 
deceased; Dr. Joseph W., who lives in the old home- 
stead "St. Georges," at Ardmore, which was left to 
him by Aunt Corona; and a daughter, Mary (Mrs. Temple 
J . English) . 

Ultimus Adjutor 


Joseph, Ultimus Adjutor and Corona did not marry 
but lived together at the homestead during their 
lives . 

So endeth the story of the fifteen children. 

Mary Buckman' s son, John, lived in Merion. He 
was a prominent insurance man in Philadelphia. He 
was very handsome and had a charming personality. He 
and mother were devoted first cousins. His daughters, 
Helen and Wilene, live on Wilmington Island, in Savan- 
nah, Georgia. Helen married Henry Walthour, now de- 
ceased, who owned 5000 acres of this beautiful island. 


It was our privilege to be most graciously enter- 
tained by Helen and Wilene, and Helen' s charming 
daughter, Helen Clark, in Savannah. Helen Walthour 
has several children, grandchildren, and a great- 
grandchild . 

John Buckman was full of fun and practical 
jokes. Mother told of a prank at Burlington. The 
Pennsylvania railroad tracks ran in the street in 
front of the Buckman homestead. When the New York 
Express was flying by one summer, and train windows 
were open, he stood behind a tree and sprayed water 
from a hose over the passengers. The railroad de- 
tectives worked on the case, but he was never dis- 

Dr. Anderson's wife was Sarah Thomas, daughter 
of Reese Thomas and Naomi Walker:- the former was 
descended from the pioneer, Reese Thomas and Martha 
Aubrey. Naomi Walker's ancestor was Lewis Walker, 
a pioneer of the Paoli Valley who built "Rehobeth." 

Naomi was a child during the Revolution and 
lived with her Parents at Rehobeth. It is said that 
General Lafayette often visited there and became 
very fond of her. He would take her on his lap and 
she would amuse him with her prattle. On one occa- 
sion she pinned a posey on his coat. 

Letter of Dr. James Anderson Giving Advice To His Son, 


Lower Merion, Montgomery County 
April 26, 1846 

Dear Son 

You now have left your Father's house. I trust 
with the best intentions, and it may be in the provi- 
dence of the Almighty, that we may not be permitted 
to see each other again in the flesh, but if it 
should be otherwise, a little paternal advice given 
in the fear of God may be surviceable both to you 
and your parent, if religiously observed. To this 
end I recommend you to have an eye single in all 
that you do to the glory of God, remembering that 
you are always in his presence, and as God has formed 
you a rational creature, so he has also made you to 
be accountable for the exercise of that power which 
he has bestowed on you. And in the first plase, if 


you would come to serve him 'prepare your souls for 
temptation and trial' , for he receaveth none till he 
hath first tried them. I would therefore recommend 
to you to study his law and his government ; and al- 
ways to be carefull to practise what you know he has 
revealed to you, for God will not give to them that 
reject him. He will be saught to, with the promise 
that none such shall seek his face in vane' and if 
any man lack wisdom let him ask of God, who, giveth 
liberally to all such, and it shall be given to 
them' . 

I recomed to you to write a rule for every day' s 
exesise in week, beginning with the morning dividing 
the day, and to each portion thereof its appropriate 
exercises; and if you should find on trial one of 
your rules not to be good, change that one for a bet- 

Your diary may be formed some what after this 
manner. Rise out of your bed in the summer season at 
half past 4 o'clock. Clense your body. Read a chap- 
ter in the Bible and meditate on the Duty half an 
hour, take bodily exercise or labour for the next 
half hour. Then get your morning lesson in your ap- 
propriate study, then breakfast, then ten minutes 
directly after breakfast, then to other branches of 
your study if it admits of division, then one hour 
for dining and conversation, then to your studies as 
in the forenoon till 5 or 6 o' clock, supper and con- 
versation one hour. Study an hour. Recapitulation 
to yourself, or with a friend or two, your studies 
thro the past day and correct any error you may de- 
tect; let a portion of your time be now employed in 
the same manner as the first exercise in the morning, 
return to rest at 9 o'clock, this will allow you 
seven and a half hours for sleep or rest. This is 
sufficient for any person in health. 

Rules for your relative conduct. Mention the 
faults of no person, whether present or absent. Be 
very guarded in giving oppinions of persons and of 
charactors. Never repeate a conversation of a per- 
son who converses with you, there is no remedy for 
the revealing of secrets, if you betray your friend 
once on this head you loose him forever, he will be 
clear of you as a bird let loose from the hands of 
the fowler, look no more after him. If any man that 


converses with you should at the time of conversation, 
either wink with his eye, or add this is betwixt you 
and me, be suspicious of him at once, for he will as- 
suredly betray you, such have no friends, and they 
are hated both by God and man. 

Make little expences, of the two, rather be con- 
tented to be thought penurious, than prodigal. In 
the first, wise and the prudent will applaud your 
conduct; in the latter case, they will be careful of 
you and watch your conduct with a jelice eye; which 
on the other hand the vain and the cycophant will 
make a gain of you and laugh at your vanity. 

My son, attend to the above admonitions in their 
meening, with those you have all ready received boath 
by precept and example and God will make them to be a 
blessing unto you. By some persons you will be count- 
ed singular. But mark the end of the just and the up- 
right man for the end of such is peace. 

One observation more and I am done. A word to 
the wise is sufficient. 

Dear Son with Parentel fealing 
I am &c.

Again mind your diet, eat that which agrees best 
with you, and not what you like best. Never take a 
supper which causes disturbed sleep viz. dreams. Never 
eat to fullness. That partakes too much of the beast. 
The best drink for health and life is water. Milk. 
Milk and water. 

Dress. Cloth not your body too cold nor too 
warm, either in winter or summer. Never sit long 
with wet shoes or boots on your feet. Never sit in a 
strong curant of air escpecially if you are heated or 
in a state of perspiration. Never suffer yourself to 
feel chilly. Guard against those little chilly creaps 
of cold upon your skin which causes it to have the ap- 
pearance of goos flesh, as it is commonly called. You 
cannot have this feeling long without becoming dis- 
eased in your body. Mind this, and it will turn to 
your advantage. 

In your journey thro life, take as little trust 
as passable, and never be too shure. There is safety 
in no path but that of duty. The way God directs man 
should chose.

When James Anderson decided to study medicine he 
was apprenticed to a Dr. Davis in Phoenixville. After 
spending a few months with him, James told his father 
that he had read all of Dr. Davis' books and had ab- 
sorbed all the information he could from the doctor, 
and wished to go where he could progress further in 
his studies. 

His father then paid ^80.00 to the Philadelphia 
Alms House (now the Pennsylvania Hospital) for his 
tuition for a year, during which time he was an in- 
terne. A couple of months later the apothecary of 
the Alms House died and James was appointed to take 
his place. At the expiration of the year he asked 
for a rebate in his tuition on account of his serv- 
ices but was refused. 

James then started to practice medicine in Pas- 
cal, which is in the vicinity of 52nd Street and Lan- 
caster Avenue, Philadelphia. After practicing for a 
couple of years he became ill and went back to his 
father's farm until he became better. It is said 
that he had tuberculosis. After his health had im- 
proved he started to practice in what is now Ardmore. 

Dr. Joseph Anderson' s father, John Anderson, 
told his son several incidents of his father' s strict- 
ness as a disciplinarian. John and his brother had 
built a little wagon and they had their younger 
brother in it and ran around the house. It over- 
turned and the brother was hurt. Their father there- 
upon had the wagon taken to the barn and broken up. 

The latter part of his life, our great-grand- 
father didn't sleep very well and used to wake up 
early in the morning. He would roam the house with 
a stick and swat every boy who wasn' t up before he 

Uncle John told of another incident when Dr. An- 
derson pulled a first tooth of one of the children; 
it hurt and the child cried. Two of his brothers 
laughed at him, so as a punishment their father pulled 
a first tooth out of each of their jaws. 

Uncle John said they were required to go bare- 
footed from early spring until late fall, having 


winter shoes and a pair of shoes to wear to church. 
They were required to get up early to bring in the 
cows from pasture. Sometimes there was a frost on 
the ground and their feet got very cold, and if one 
of the cows had been lying down, they would warm 
their feet in the warm ground from which the cow 

As an example of his determination, Uncle John 
told about his father' s trip to Clarion County in 
Northwestern Pennsylvania where James had forest 
lands, mostly oak. He visited there every year and 
it took him a month. He rode to Columbia on horse- 
back, then took the canal boat up the Juniata, then 
over the mountains by inclined plane, then out the 
Canal leading up the Allegheny to Foxburg and the 
rest of the way by horse. On one trip, on the way 
to Columbia, James had a hemorrhage. It left him so 
weak that he lay down by the side of the road for 
most of the day. He did not return home, however, 
but determinedly proceeded on his way and finished 
his trip. 

He was always going to law. It was said by 
some of the neighbors that there was never a term of 
Court in Norristown but James Anderson had a case in 
litigation. He brought suit against John Humphreys 
which cost him several thousand dollars. This is 
the John Humphreys' family from which Humphrey sville 
was named, now Bryn Mawr. 

Dr. James Anderson's son, Joseph helped him in 
his practice and was told at one time to make some 
pills with ten grains of calomel mixed with ten 
grains of jalap, which is also a purgative. The 
pills when made were too soft, so Uncle Joe added 
more jalap to make them harder. When his father re- 
turned he told him what had happened, and that he 
thought the pills were so large they probably could 
not be used and would have to be thrown away. His 
father told him that he should have added some 
powdered licorice to harden them, but nevertheless, 
he would use the pills, it would be wasteful to throw 
them away. The consequences may be imaginedl 


Dr. Isaac Anderson, our grandfather, is said to 
have been over six feet tall, and of distinguished 


Cousin Sallie Linard told me that she remembered 
him as a handsome man, and very much of a gentleman. 
She recollected that when she was a child, and had 
come to visit in Haverford at his home, he was on 
horseback; he dismounted from his horse, removed his 
glove and shook her hand to welcome her. 

He purchased from his father the homestead in 
Haverford, now known as "Llanelyw" from the old Au- 
brey Homestead in Wales. This was part of the orig- 
inal grant, extending from Wynnewood to Bryn Mawr 
inclusive, made to John Humphrey in 1684, one of the 
original settlers of the Welsh Tract. His son, 
Daniel, acquired 290 acres in Haverford in 1701 and 
may have built the oldest part of the house. John 
Humphrey, his descendant, died in 1761 without a 
will, and the farm then went to Benjamin Humphrey, 
who died in 1830, leaving one child, Jane, who mar- 
ried a man by the name of Price. Jane died in 1834, 
without children, and the property was sold at pub- 
lic auction in 1836. It was purchased by my great- 
grandfather, Dr. James Anderson and Dennis Kelly, 
who later sold his interest to the doctor, who in 
turn sold it to his son, Isaac, on April 1, 1848. 

Isaac Anderson died in 1855, leaving three chil- 
dren surviving - our mother, Hannah, Andrew Crawford, 
and Isaac Wesley. He had been called from bed by a 
patient on a stormy night, and rode horse-back 
through the sleet; and, as a result, contracted pneu- 
monia from which he died. 

The following is a letter from the Dean of Jef- 
ferson Medical College to his father: 

Phila. March 3rd, 1832 

To Dr. James Anderson ) 
of Montgomery County ) 
Dear Sir: 

We have fully considered the circumftances to 
which you have alluded in your very polite letter of 
the first instant. 

Your son Isaac has been one of our most diligent 
and attentive pupils during the past three sessions; 
and his improvement in his studies has been in all 
respects as great as could have been expected from 
any young man of his age, but he has not arrived at 
the age to which we are confined by law, in the con- 
ferring of our degrees. 


During the remaining three years of that term, 
he must continue as an undergraduate, although he 
will not be prevented from assisting you in your 
practice. We have . examined him unofficially for 
your gratification, and take great pleasure in as- 
suring you, that we have been induced to form a very 
high opinion of his attainments and qualifications. 

This expression of our favorable opinion of his 
present qualifications will not however have any 
bearing upon his final examination, provided he shall 
hereafter present himself before our board as a can- 
didate for a Degree. 

Your Obet Servent 
and Friend

Obituary from newspaper - 

"Dr. Isaac W. Anderson, Dec. 23, 1856. In 
Athensville, (now Ardmore, which included Haver- 
ford) Pennsylvania, Dr. Isaac W. Anderson, aged 
42. He descended from an old and highly hon- 
oured Methodist family, distinguished alike for 
its past connexions and sacrifices, and its 
present members and usefulness. At a very early 
period in life the mind of Dr. Anderson was im- 
pressed with the great truths of religion, and 
while yet engaged in the study of medical science, 
his heart rejoiced in the honour of being a child 
of God, and he realized in the Church an ade- 
quate and blessed nursing mother. He joined the 
M. E. Church on Radnor Circuit, of which he re- 
mained a member till death. For several years 
he was steward of the circuit, and amid all the 
difficulties of a large and laborious country 
practice, he found time for both the public and 
private duties of religion. As a man he pos- 
sessed plainness and integrity of character; as 
a Christian, though clear in his conviction of 
acceptance in 'the Beloved', he was humble in 
his profession. Honour and purity distinguished 
his conduct and conversation in all the rela- 
tions of life. Kindness and skill gave him great 


influence as a physician and his death was felt 
and mourned as a calamity in the community where 
he was known and had lived from childhood-. As 
his end drew nigh, he said to his brother, Dr. 
J. R. Anderson, one of the ministers of the 
Philadelphia Conference: "Of skill in physi- 
cians I "have enough; but I want prayer; pray 
for me." God revealed himself to his spirit in 
greater fulness, and after sweet expression of 
praise to his heavenly Father, and commendation 
of his family to God, he breathed out his spirit 
with holy composure, and now rests with Abraham 
and Isaac and Jacob in the Kingdom of Heaven."

From the Journal of Rev. James Rush Anderson, Written 
Jan. 8, 1857. 

"Death - who has so often showed his grim visage 
to me - has again approached very near. My dear 
Brother - my only own brother, whom his darts 
had not assailed until the 23rd of December last, 
fell then a victim to their stroke. Though in 
feeble health for about two years, he had con- 
tinued in the active duties of his profession 
until within two weeks of his death, when his 
physical strength gave way under a complication 
of diseases, and he was compelled to retire to 
his chamber. Having been aware that his end was 
approaching, he had arranged his temporal mat- 
ters before that time, and released his hold 
upon worldly objects. They did not therefore 
trouble him, while on his death bed. But he 
gave himself up entirely to the Lord, and wait- 
ed patiently for His coming. During one of my 
visits to him, he remarked, 'Of medical advis- 
ors, I have enough. If it is prudent, pray for 
me,' and during the prayer and afterward his 
soul appeared to be absorbed in holy contempla- 
tion. He died on Sabbath evening, while prayer 
was being offered up on his behalf, and being 
conscious until his last moment, it is not too 
much to say that his soul heard prayer on earth, 
and praise in heaven, while passing through 
death's valley, I was not present at this scene. 
I was preaching to my congregation, while it was 


transpiring and my own spirit was drawn out in 
sympathy with his. I informed the people of his 
near approach to death, and told them of how of- 
ten I had in my youthful days heard his voice in 
prayer, as it escaped from his closet. And then 
being transported to the death scene, I spoke of 
his entrance into glory. Ah, then he was pass- 
ing away. The next morning I was informed of 
his departure. It had occured at the time I had 
thus felt and spoken. He was nearly forty-two 
years of age. For nearly a quarter of a century 
he had practiced medicine in this neighborhood, 
first with my father, and then alone. 

He was greatly and deservedly esteemed. At 
his funeral, which took place on Thursday, the 
27th inst., the poor and the rich met together 
and mingled their tears and condolence with the 
tears and sorrows of his widow and children, and 
of those of his father, brothers and sisters. I 
have composed death songs because of the depart- 
ure of some of my friends. And now while I 
write my pen moves over paper raised by the hair 
of my darling boy, who last left me. (Note: His 
son had died shortly before.) 

Dearest Brotherl Sad and mournful, 
Are the hearts which think of thee 
Thou hast left us and death scornful 
of our sorrows Ah, I cannot write. 

It is possible my brother that I cannot say as 
much for thee as David did for Jonathan. I can say 

Not vilely cast away thy shield was held 
Throughout life's battle; and 'gainst all thy foes 
Thou wagest successful war. Beneath thy stroke 
Thy enemies have fallen, slain upon slain. 
j Towers and principal cities gave way 

And all thy passions and desires, subdued 

By grace, yielded the palm through Christ Thy Lord 

To thee. 

In life what wast thou? A mere man 
Indeed thou wast. But man by grace refined. 
A Christian man. A nobleman of Godl A saint.' 
Yet thou didst not with pharisian pride boast 
Of thy goodness, but in humbleness of mind 


Didst walk with God, and in thy latest hour 
Braved Death and conquered him. 

Now a glad saint 
Victorious in the skies, thou hear' st the word 
"Well done"! Thy toils are over 
And with myriads of successful souls 
Thou dost forever rest." 


Uncle Isaac was a successful business man in the 
early part of his life. He went west to establish 
the town of Tacoma, Washington, and was in charge of 
selling lots to the settlers for the Northern Pacific 
Railway, which had just been completed and had estab- 
lished a terminus on Puget Sound at the site of the 
prospective city. He was secretary to General S. A. 


Black, Superintendent of the railroad, and became 
Secretary of the Tacoma Land Company. Uncle Isaac 
was a member of Tacoma' s first Park Board, and an 
organizer of the hospital, and other institutions. 
He promoted the acquisition of the Fort Defiance Res- 
ervation from the Federal Government for use as a 
public park. At the time of the depression of 1892, 
he was reputed to have been a man of wealth. His in- 
vestments, however, were mostly in the institutions 
and industries he had helped to promote in Tacoma and 
the west; these were foreclosed on the mortgages, and 
he was wiped out. His creditors levied on his stable 
of fine racing horses and all he had left were his 
beautiful house furnishings, in his wife's name; they 
included Chinese rugs, furniture and other valuable 
objects imported from the Orient. These furnishings 
had been placed in storage, the storage house burned 
down, and as the goods were not covered by insurance, 
they lost everything. 

Later he built up a successful chain of gas and 
electric companies in Washington and Oregon, and sold 
them at a substantial profit to Byllesby and Company. 
He then engaged in promoting a gold mine and again 
lost most of his property. Uncle Isaac was short and 
stout, with a full beard. He was a live wire, full 
of fun and we were all devoted to him. He had a 
twinkling eye and a fascinating dimple. 

Uncle Crawford had a farm at Sugartown (near 


Paoli) and subsequently sold it and moved to Tacoma. 
He was popular with everybody and was always cheerful 
and full of fun, with a hearty laugh. 

His children are all married and living in the 
far west. His son, Sidney, was for many years the 
Business Manager of the Tacoma newspaper. 


Our Grandmother, Martha Anderson, was a sterling 
character and very much beloved by all in the neigh- 
borhood in which she lived. After her husband's death 
she was able to run her farm at Haverford, and send 
our mother to the Bordentown Female Institute of Bor- 
dentown, New Jersey, and her son, Isaac, to Haverford 
College. 4 Grandmother, when a child, attended the Kim- 
berton Female Academy, above Phoenixville. Her father 
drove back and forth every week-end, some fifteen 
miles from their home, Mt. Pleasant Farm, near West 

She lived with us at Haverford during the latter 
part of her life. I heard father say that she was 
always helpful and never once had caused any friction 
in the family. She was never known to have been ill 
until she had an accident one night, shortly before 
her death. When she was in the kitchen, after having 
put out the light to return to the living room, she 
opened the wrong door and fell down the cellar stairs 
and badly bruised her face. She did not complain 
about it, but we could see her, from time to time, 
put her hand to her cheek and we knew it was giving 
her pain. 

She lost two of her children by accident, one of 
whom was scalded to death, but she never referred to 
them. The poor people of the neighborhood told me 
she always helped when anyone was in trouble. In her 
78th year she slept peacefully away. 


Everett W. Anderson was the son of Joseph Everett 
Anderson and Rebecca Workhizer and grandson of Isaac 
Anderson and Mary Lane. He was born in 1839 and died 
in 1917. 

Everett was a Lieutenant in Company "K" Pennsyl- 
vania Volunteers Infantry in the Civil War and served 


under Captain N. A. Pennypacker. During the war he 
was transferred to Company "M" 15th Pennsylvania 
Cavalry. He received two medals of honor from the 
United States Congress, one for galantry in action 
in Crosby's Creek in Eastern Tennessee on January 14, 
1862. He went through the Confederate lines to the 
house in which General Robert Vance and his four 
aides were sleeping and, single handed, captured all 
five and delivered them back to the Federal line. 

Everett was the brother of James, Matthew and 
Sarah. Cousin James lived on the old Anderson Farm 
and Cousins Everett and Matt lived on other farms 
near Phoenixville. Cousin Sarah, of whom I have 
written, lived in Phoenixville. I visited them with 
my mother about 1910. They are all tall, broad 
chested, distinguished looking men and their hospi- 
tality was delightful to experience. 




Patrick Anderson was Vestryman, 1774-80 
He was "buried here 


William Lane, Vestryman, donated to it 42 

acres of land in 1737 


You will remember that I mentioned Isaac Ander- 
son' s wife, Mary Lane, who had a break with her hus- 
band about refusing to dress up in gaudy apparel to 
go with him to Congress. (An example to the present 
generation! ) 

Mary rode every Sunday on horseback to the Metho- 
dist Meeting until she became over 70 and too old and 
crippled. During her last days, she spent her time 
doing beautiful needlework; and some of her work is 
still preserved in the family. 

Her obituary, which appeared in Bayard Taylor's 
PHOENIXVILLE PIONEER, on September 14, 1847 reads: 
"She possessed naturally a strong and vigorous 
intellect, a moral courage which nothing could 
shake, and a perseverance in what she esteemed 
right, that no difficulties could dampen. She 
attended the Methodist Meeting at a time when 
its members, as well as its teachers, were de- 
spised and persecuted. Other severe trials came 
around, and she bore them all with that patience 
and faith in the Divine Will which the sancti- 
fied alone can weather. She and her husband 
frequently rode to Lancaster and New Jersey on 
horseback to attend religious meetings. She died 
on Friday, the 27th of August, 1847, in the 86th 
year of her life, peacefully and happily, as if 
sinking into a sweet repose." 
She was carried to her grave in the Anderson 
burying ground by four of her grandsons named "Isaac." 
An anecdote characteristic of her energy was re- 
lated that when her husband' s sister from New Jersey 
made her first visit on horseback, arriving at night, 
Mary did not have sufficient food in the house and 
arose before daylight and went on horseback to her 
father, Edward Lane's residence, and brought back a 
quarter of lamb, coffee and sugar. With this she 
prepared a bountiful breakfast, much to the astonish- 
ment of her husband. 

Mary's father, Edward Lane, was born in Evans- 
burg near the Perkiomen, where his grandfather, Ed- 
ward Lane, established old St. James Episcopal Church, 
and endowed it with 42 acres of ground. Subsequently, 
Edward Jr. bought a farm on White Horse Road near the 


Anderson farm in Chester County. He was in Captain 
Patrick's Company in the French and Indian War. He 
used his team to haul supplies for the Continental 
Army at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-8. His 
wife was Sarah Richardson, a descendant of Samuel 
Richardson (infra). Sarah fed many hungry Revolu- 
tionary soldiers in her house. She is said to have 
had a very firm character, and to have been an addict 
to snuff. 

His grandfather, Edward Lane, married Anne Rich- 
ardson,, the daughter of Samuel Richardson, one of the 
most prominent and influential early Quakers in Penn- 

Edward Senior, is said to have owned Rittenhouse 
Square, and leased it to the City for 99 years. When 
the term of the lease expired, a representative of 
the family went to the Recorder of Deeds to establish 
ownership in the property, but the record was missing 
from the book; the leaves having been cut out. Ef- 
forts were made by the late Everett Schofield, Esq., 
a family connection, to recover the land or damages 
from the city, but without success. 

This same Edward purchased in 1698, 2500 acres 
on the Perkiomen and Skippach Creeks, which included 
the present towns of Collegeville and Trappe and ex- 
tended south to Providence Square. He erected a 
grist mill on the Skippach Creek in 1708. William 
Penn refers to Edward Lane in terms of friendship, 
and entrusted him with important correspondence to 
bring over to the Province with him. He came from 
Jamaica in 1684. Edward built a hotel in 1706 where 
the Bridge Hotel, Collegeville, Penna., now stands. 
It is said to be the oldest hotel in the State. Hav- 
ing the largest house in the neighborhood he enter- 
tained travellers, and it was the place where the 
mail was distributed and news was disseminated by 
word of mouth and public notices pasted. In terms 
of our younger generation, it was the centre of "Bull 
sessions," especially when the Philadelphia coach 
rolled in. Adjoining was the field where cattle and 
sheep were corralled overnight when being driven to the 
City for meat. 

Edward' s father, William Lane, a grocer, lived 
in Bristol, England, and was one of the first pur- 
chasers of land from William Penn in 1681. He was 


fined 220 pounds, and his wife 60 pounds, for not 
attending the worship of the Church of England in 


WILLIAM LANE, Quaker, Bristol, England, married Cecil 

Love. Purchased 500 acres from William 
Penn in 1681.

the Lord Keepers under Charles I •

Although a Friend, Samuel Richardson, was a pug- 
nacious individual. In the year 1667 he was arrested 
at Peel, England, and taken before two Justices at 
the Ale House near Clerkenwell and accused of laying 
violent hands on one of the soldier's muskets. He de- 
nied the charge, and testified that he was standing 
peaceably with his hands in his pockets. After the 
hearing one of the Justices asked Richardson: 

"Will you promise to come no more at (Friends) 
Meeting?" He answered: "I can promise no such 

Justice: "Will you pay your five shillings?" 
(This was the fine for failure to attend the services 
of the Church of England.) 

Richardson: "I do not know that I owe five 
shillings." The Justice then fined him five shill- 

In 1686 he bought 5,000 acres in Bristol Town- 
ship, 300 acres in Bucks County, 80 acres in Liberty 
Lands (Northern Liberties, now Philadelphia), and a 
frontage in the City on the North side of High (Mar- 
ket Street) extending from Front to Second, and an- 
other lot at Sixth and High Streets. In addition, he 
purchased 1160 acres in Chester County. For the whole 
he paid 340 pounds. Richardson was a prominent mer- 
chant, and took an active part in the affairs of the 
Province; he is said to have been the second wealthi- 
est man in the Province. 

On January 30, 1686 Samuel Richardson took his 
seat as a member of the Provincial Council. Two years 
later, on January 20, 1688, he was made one of the 
Judges of the County Court. 

A serious controversy in the Council arose be- 
tween him and Governor Keith. Richardson contended 
that he was not Governor, but only Deputy Governor, 
to which Keith took exception, as conduct unbecoming 
a member of the Council, and reproached Richardson 
for having "Taken too great liberty to carry it un- 
beseemingly and very provokingly, particularly in- 
stancing in ye said Samuel Richardson' s former de- 
claring at severall times yt he did not owne ye 
Goverr, to be Goverr, &c: to which he peremptorily 
replied that he did not nor would, saying to him he 


was not Goverr and he would stand by it and make it 
good; that Win. Penn could not make a Goverr". 

As Samuel Richardson still persisted in denying 
Keith was Governor, he was ordered to withdraw until 
the Council should debate the question. He replied: 
"I will not withdraw. I was not brought hither by 
thee and I will not get out by thy order. I was sent 
by ye people and thou hast no power to put me out" . 
The Governor said he could not stay there and suffer 
his power to be questioned, and appealed to the Coun- 
cil to support him; all of whom did, excepting Arthur 
Cooke, who said he did not believe that Wm. Penn could 
create a governorship; but only a deputy-governorship. 

Richardson was then asked by the council to with- 
draw while "they further debated ye matter". There- 
upon he went forth. The Governor and the Council de- 
cided that he must acknowledge his offense and prom- 
ise more respect for the future, before he would be 
allowed to sit again in the Council, but this Rich- 
ardson refused to do. The Governor thereupon called 
for someone to take Richardson's place. 

On the 3rd day of the second month, 1689, when 
Governor Keith was addressing the Council on charges 
against Thomas Lloyd, Richardson came in and the Gov- 
ernor asked him if he had anything to say to the Coun- 
cil. Richardson said he came to discharge his duty as 
a member of that Board. The Governor said he had 
been dismissed for his misdemeanors and that a writ 
had been issued to elect another in his place. Rich- 
ardson replied that he knew nothing that he had done, 
but that he had said "Thou wert a deputy Governor" . 
The Governor replied that his behavior was in so great 
contempt of the authority of the Proprietor that he 
should withdraw, which Samuel refused to do; there- 
upon the Governor declared that he would adjourn the 
Council to another time, and provide an officer at 
the door to keep Richardson out. 

On the 8th day of the 2nd month, 1689, the Sher- 
iff, John Claypoole, made his return "that the Free 
Men of the County mett at ye time and place therein 
specified"; the voters to "elect from amongst them- 
selves whom else they shall think fittest to serve in 
the stead of ye sayd Samuel Richardson" . The voters 
thereupon proceeded to re-elect Richardson. 

Then he, with Thomas Lloyd and John Beckley came 


into the Council, upon which the Governor stood up 
and desired what their pleasure was. Thomas Lloyd 
said they came to pay their respects to the Governor, 
and to sit in the Council. The Governor told him 
that he had at several times declared himself that 
they could not be admitted until he and the Council 
agreed. As they persisted on remaining the Governor 
adjourned the Council, and arose to depart, some of 
the Councilors departing with the Governor, but Rich- 
ardson, Lloyd, and Beckley kept their seats. 

The end of the long and bitter controversy was 
reached at a meeting of the council on November 1, 
1689. With a full Council present, Governor Keith 
presented a written address in which he stated that 
he was conscious that he was not acceptable to them 
from the very first day that they had seen him, and 
that he had just received a packet of letters in 
which the Proprietor had consented, with reluctance, 
"to ease him of the burden". He therefore voluntar- 
ily and freely gave up his seat. 

William Penn authorized the Council to choose 
its own President, and they elected Thomas Lloyd. In 
his letter Penn wrote: "Salute me to ye people in 
genii. Pray send J. Simcook, A. Cooke, John Eckley, 
and Samuel Carpendter, and lett them dispose T. I. 
and S. Richardson complying temper that may tend to 
that loving and serious accord yt becomes such a gov- 
ernment . " 

During the remainder of his term as a member of 
the Council, Richardson seems to have been in attend- 
ance at all but one meeting. 

He was a member of the Assembly in 1692-3-4. In 
1695 he was elected to the Governor' s Council for two 
years. He was appointed by the Governor in 1695 one 
of a committee of two, to take action on a letter 
from the Queen fixing a quota in Pennsylvania of 80 
men for the defense of New York against the French. 
The Committee met, and its written report recommend- 
ed the Assembly to raise 500 pounds "upon the under- 
standing with Col. Fletcher, that it should not be 
dipped in blood, but should be used to feed the hun- 
gry and clothe the naked" ; but the recruits were not 
provided, being against the principles of the Quak- 

In 169"8 the Assembly passed a resolution that 


Samuel Richardson, Anthony Morris and Thomas Fox draw 
up a bill to regulate the water-courses in the streets 
of the City. (The gutters were used to carry off sew- 
age and surface water.) Richardson was one of a com- 
mittee appointed to complete a new Market House in 
Philadelphia, the stalls of which were to be let out 
to merchants who paid rent for them; he contributed 
five pounds towards it. 

Samuel Richardson came to this country from Ja- 
maica. While attending a Friends' Meeting there in 
1672 an earthquake occurred. As they passed through 
the burying ground, the earth rocked and yawned to 
such an extent that some coffins were exposed to view. 
After the shocks had ceased, he saw a young woman in 
the harbor of Port Royal floating on the roof of a 
dwelling, which had been submerged. At the risk of 
his own life, Samuel sprang into the surging waters 
and saved her from a watery grave. Gratitude toward 
her preserver afterwards ripened into love, and she 
became his wife. 

Our early ancestors set an example of romance in 
the family which has cropped out from time to time in 
their descendants. 

His son Joseph, married Sir John Beavan' s daugh- 
ter, Elizabeth. He obtained his education in Daniel 
Pastorius' school. He is said to have been a man of 
great strength. One of his stunts was to hang a 56- 
pound weight on his little finger and write on the 
wall at arms length. He purchased a thousand acres 
at the junction of the Perkiomen Creek and the Schuyl- 
kill River, in the region known as Olethgo, and his 
estate was known by that name.

EDWARD RICHARDSON married Ann Jones 

SARAH RICHARDSON married Edward Lane 

MARY LANE married Isaac Anderson 


George Bartholomew and wife Mary settled in 
Burlington, New Jersey, about 1680 - moved to Phila- 
delphia 1683 and became proprietor of the Blue Anchor 
Inn. He purchased the Inn in 1686 for 150 pounds 
from Griffith Jones, subject to a mortgage of 125 
pounds, payable in pork, cattle, and beef. As it 
was not paid at the time of George' s death, his widow 
conveyed the Inn back to Mr. Jones in liquidation of 
the debt. The Inn was located on the river front, at 
Front and Dock Streets. William Penn stayed there on 
his first visit to this city. 

According to family tradition, the Bartholomews 
were French Huguenots who fled to England during the 
persecution of the Protestants. Bartholomews lived 
in W arbor ough, Oxfordshire, England, as early as 1550. 

George' s son, John, was born 1634-5, died 1756 
and married Mary Perry. John lived at Marcus Hook, 
moved to Montgomery County, and became a member of 
Montgomery Baptist Church in 1724. 

His daughter, Anna, married Isaac Morris, oldest 
of eleven children. They were received in the Great 
Valley Baptist Church, May 7, 1756. Isaac was a rul- 
ing elder in the Baptist Church from 1734 until his 

Elizabeth, daughter of Isaac Morris and Ann 
(Bartholomew) Morris, married Patrick Anderson. 

The gravestone of John in the cemetery of the 
old Great Valley Church bears the inscription: 
In Memory of 

John Bartholomew 
who departed this life 

30th day of October 1756 
Aged 71 years. 

"Although my life has been so long 
Still troubles did increase 
But now at length my Race is run 
And I lie down in Peace." 

Elizabeth' s brother, Benjamin, was Captain in 
the Revolutionary War. (See life of Isaac Anderson 
concerning their dispute over the white horse.)

The first settler of the Pennypacker family in 
Pennsylvania was Hendrick Pannebeeker, who was born 
March 21, 1674 and emigrated to Germantown, Penna. 
in 1699. From there he moved to Skippack in 1702. 
Hendrick was a surveyor who laid out most of the 
early roads in what is now Montgomery County. Accord- 
ing to Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker, in his Auto- 
biography , his ancestor, Hendrick, owned 7000 acres 
of land and had a large library of books. 

Mr. Joseph W. Pennypacker of Haddonfield, N.J. 


"The first trace of the name in America is on 
the 'Manhattas Map 1639' (N.Y. Public Library) at Red 
Hook, L.I., a'Pannebakkerij .' That his was more than 
a mere occupational name is indicated by four deeds 
of record (Dutch Archives, Albany, N.Y.) for transfer 
of "Pannebakker' s Bowery" on Manhattan, 1645. I think, 
but cannot prove, that this was Hendrick' s grand- 

Hendrick' s son, Jacob, ran a mill on the Skip- 
pack, and his grandson, Matthias, moved to Pickering 
Creek in Chester County, adjoining the Anderson Farm. 
Matthias was a Mennonite bishop. He ran a mill on 
the Pickering, and sent several contributions of 
flour to Philadelphia during the Yellow Fever epi- 
demic in 1793. His son, Matthias, Jr., was a Member 
of the State Assembly, and represented Chester County 
in the Constitutional Convention of 1837. He married 
Sarah Anderson, daughter of Isaac Anderson. 

His son Dr. Isaac Anderson Pennypacker was a 
prominent physician. 

The most distinguished member of the family was 
his son, the Honorable Samuel W. Pennypacker, one of 
Pennsylvania's most distinguished citizens. 

When I came to the Philadelphia bar he was the 
most highly respected Common Pleas Judge, and had the 
affection and admiration of the whole bar. Subse- 
quently, he became Governor of the Commonwealth. He 
was a great student of history, wrote several histor- 
ical works, and was President of the Historical Soci- 
ety of Pennsylvania and left his mark indelibly on 
the state and the nation. 

His son, Beavan Aubrey Pennypacker, and his 


nephew, Isaac Anderson Pennypacker, are both lawyers 
of high standing at the Philadelphia bar today . 

The Governor* s cousin, Galushia Pennypacker, was 
Brigadier General in the Civil War and the youngest 
man to hold that rank in the Army. 

Mr. Morton Pennypacker of East Hampton, Long Is- 
land, has furnished the following material: 

During the early days of the Dutch occupation of 
New Amsterdam (New York City) there were a great many 
fires . The town burghers thought that the thatched 
roofs were a contributing factor to these fire haz- 
ards, so passed an ordinance forbidding the construc- 
tion of thatched roofs. The people were at a loss 
how to replace the thatched roofs with some other 
kind, until one worthy burgher had a brilliant idea. 
He remembered that back in Holland roofs were made of 
tile. But there were no tile-makers in New Amsterdam. 
This lack was remedied by sending to Holland for a 
company of pannebachers, or tile-makers. From this 
word has come the name Pennypacker. 

MANHATTAN 1624 TO 1659 by Edward Van Winkle 
(Holland Society of N.Y.). "A pannebackery is a 
tile-kiln j while a pannebacker is a tile-maker. A 
Pannebacker operated in 1639 two houses and three 
plantations on Long Island near Red Hook which is 
shown on the map as being an island southeast of 
Governor's Island. In 1645 Pannebacker obtained a 
bouwerie adjoining No. 5 and Wagon Road on Manhat- 
tan . " 

A "bouwerie" in those days was a large tract of 
land, or plantation. Mr. Morton Pennypacker also 
told me the story of how the Pennypacker family hap- 
pened to move to Philadelphia from New York and Long 
Island. During the Dutch occupation of New Amster- 
dam there were several skirmishes with the Indians; 
in one of these battles two members of the Penny- 
packer family were killed. Shortly afterwards the 
entire branch of Pennypacker moved bag and baggage 
to Philadelphia, where they could find a more peace- 
ful environment. When asMed how the family got 
there, Mr. Pennypacker smilingly replied, "They 
walked . " 



The first spelling of the name of this family 
was SKOLFIELD. Thomas Skolfield, an Englishman, was 
an officer in King William's army, and took part in 
the Irish Campaign, 1690, when King James was driven 
from Ireland. As a reward he was granted a tract of 
land in that country. The original Thomas Skolfield 
had four children: 

Thomas Skolfield, Jr. 




George Skolfield settled in Philadelphia, Penna. 
Thomas, Jr. and Susan settled in Brunswick, Maine. 

William Skolfield, son of George Skolfield (who 
settled in Philadelphia) and Rebecca Davis, served 
as Lieutenant under Captains Job and Fred Vernon in 
the Revolutionary War, taking part in the Battles of 
Paoli, Brandywine, and Germantown under General Wayne. 
William's home was in the locality of what is now 
Nutts Road and Main Street, Phoenixville, Penna. 

He married Elizabeth Lane, daughter of Edward 
Lane (see Lane family) . She was only 15 years old 
and he thirty when they eloped. 

Thomas Skolfield, Jr. received a liberal educa- 
tion at Dublin University, and shortly after gradua- 
tion, emigrated in 1732 to America with the Orr fam- 
ily, and taught a Latin School in Boston. Subse- 
quently, (about 1742) the Orrs removed to Maine, and 
Skolfield went with them. He married Mary Orr, and 
settled in Brunswick. He and the Orrs bought about 
350 acres of land for the sum of 85 pounds. 

Thomas Skolfield, Jr. was a prominent man in 
town affairs. He was chosen May 22, 1777, as an of- 
ficer empowered to receive recognizances. He was on 
several committees to draw up resolutions during the 
Revolutionary War and was Town Clerk from 1752 to 
1761, and again in 1763 and 1765. He was on the 
Board of Selectmen for twenty-three years. 

Thomas Skolfield, Jr., died January 6, 1796; 
his wife died August 1, 1771. 

(The above is from Wheeler' s History of 
Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell, Maine, 
Boston, 1879. Page 802-803 and Pages 852- 


Lemuel Braddock Schofield, a leader of the 
Philadelphia bar, and one of the patrons of this 
book, is a descendant of George Skolfield. Mr. 
Schofield was formerly Director of Public Safety of 
Philadelphia, and late Special Assistant to the At- 
torney General of the United States in charge of the 
Immigration and Naturalization Service. 



In 1681, a committee of prominent Welsh Quakers 
visited Penn in London to negotiate for a tract of 
land in Pennsylvania. In this committee six Monthly- 
Meetings were represented, and one was represented by 
Sir John Beavan, of Treverigg Manor, Llantrisant. The 
committee requested that the tract should become a 
barony governed by the Welsh, where they could con- 
tinue their customs and language under their own lo- 
cal government. They understood their request to be 
granted but it was later disputed by Penn, and no 
charter for separate government was ever granted. 
The grant was made of 40,000 acres, and Sir 
John subscribed for 2000, located in Merion and 
Haverford Townships, along what is now the "Main 
Line." Here settled our ancestors, Sir John, his 
relatives, and our forbears, - Reese Thomas and Mar- 
tha Aubrey, his wife. 

(See Accounts of the Aubrey and Beavan Families.) 


We are descended, through several branches, from 
the Quakers of Wales. Our great-grandfather, Dr. 
James Anderson's wife was Sarah Thomas, who was a di- 
rect descendant of Martha Aubrey, who married Rees 
Thomas in 1692, after her arrival in this country 
from Wales. Martha came over with her uncle by mar- 
riage, Sir John Bevan. Her fiance, Rees Thomas, had 
already migrated to this country. We are descended 
from Sir John through his daughter Elizabeth, who 
married our ancestor, Joseph Richardson, of whose 
father, the distinguished Samuel Richardson, I have 
written at length. 

Martha Aubrey's father, Sir William Aubrey, was 
Lord of the Manor of Llanalyw, which is located in a 
mountain valley near Talgarth, Brecknockshire, Wales. 
Her brother, William Aubrey, married William Penn' s 
daughter, Letitia. Martha's son, Aubrey Thomas, mar- 
ried Guglielma Penn, daughter of William Penn, Jr. 

I visited Llanelyw with my family in the summer 
of 1929, at which time I and my two boys were attend- 
ing the International Boy Scout Jamboree at Birken- 
head, England. Talgarth is a quaint Welsh village of 
a few hundred people, with charming old whitewashed 
stone and plaster houses, with roofs of native sand- 
stone shingles covered with moss. The vicar took us 
by auto up into a mountain dell, sheltered by the 
Black Mountains, about five miles from the village. 
The Manor House was a Gothic structure, the entrance 
being only one story high, but on account of the 
sloping ground, there were two stories below. Over 
the Gothic entrance there was engraved the inscrip- 
tion in Latin: 

"Excitus acta probat 

Sic Hora Sic Vita 

Deus Nobis haec otia fecit R.A.W.N. 

Anno Domini xxxx Noctua II vola 1676 W.A.H.I. 

Non Jupiter Quidem omnibus placit. 

Spes alit exules." 

"The outcome justifies the performance. 

Our life is like a fleeting hour. 

It is a God who wrought for us this peace 
(from Virgil) A. D. 


Fly a second time Owl, 

Indeed not even Jupiter pleases every one. 
Hope nourishes exiles." 
The initials cannot be translated. 

The Vicar thought the Manor had originally been 
a Roman Catholic Monastery, because of the Gothic 
architecture and the Latin inscriptions, and that it 
had been confiscated by Henry VIII. However, edu- 
cated persons used Latin in that period. 

Henry VIII broke with Rome in 1532 and died in 
1547. It is therefore possible that Llanalyw was a 
monastery before it became the property of the Vaughns 
through whom the Aubreys became Lord of the Manor by 
marriage . 

Adjoining the Manor House was a small, ancient 
chapel dedicated to Saint Ellyw. The vicar' showed 
me the old prayer book which was in Welsh. In the 
chancel there are buried Martha's father, Sir William 
Aubrey, and her grandfather, Sir Richard Aubrey, who 
became Lord of Llanelyw in 1580. The copper tablet 
over his tomb bears the inscription: 

"Here lyeth the body of Richard Aubrey of 
Llanelyw, Gent, who married Anne Vaughn, daugh- 
ter to. William Vaughn of Llanelyw, who had is- 
sue, William, Richard, Thomas, John Theophilus 
and Elizabeth, A.D. the 23rd day of September, 

The Coat-of-Arms of the Aubrey and Vaughn fami- 
lies are on the tomb. 

The inscription on the tablet on William' s tomb 

"Here lyeth the body of William Aubrey of 
Llanelyw, son of Thomas Aubrey, Gent. Married 
Elizabeth, daughter of William Aubrey, Had is- 
sue ten. Richard, William 2, Thomas, Theophilus, 
Anne, Mary 2, Martha (our ancestor), and Eliza- 
beth. Departed this life in the hope of a joy- 
ful resurrection 16 of December, 1716, aged 90." 

The Aubreys originally lived at Aberkynrigg, 
about ten miles away. This is a charming old Norman 
mansion, on a beautiful lawn, sloping down on the 
River Wye. It was built shortly after the first 
grant made by William the Conqueror to Sir Reginald 
Aubrey in 1092, for having aided Bernard de Newmarch 


in the subjugation of Vales, for which he was granted 
Aberkynrigg and Slough in Brecknockshire. I obtained 
a photograph of the old manor house, and had copies 
sent to members of the family. It is in the Parish 
of Llanfrynock, Breckonshire and lately occupied by 
Capt. Hall, a member of Parliament. 

A copy of the family tree is attached. 

Sir Reginald Aubrey, the first of the line in 
Wales, was a son of Saint Aubrey of the Blood Royal 
of France, who came to England with William the Con- 
queror in 1066. Through the Aubrey line, we are de- 
scended from the ancient Kings of Wales and France. 
His descendant, Sir Richard, sold Aberkynrigg to Dr. 
William Aubrey. Richard's son, Richard, by marrying 
Anne Vaughn became, in right of his wife, Lord of the 
Manor of Llanelyw, as she was co-heiress of the manor 
with her father, Sir William Vaughn. 

The Vaughns were descended from Sir Roger Vaughn 
of Talgarth who was a member of Parliament in 1547, 
1552, 1553, 1554 and 1558, and knighted in 1550. He 
had six legitimate children and four base, and Ann 
was descended from the base line. A bar sinister'. 

There were Vaughns living in Llanelyw when I 
visited there, and a Thomas occupied the next farm. 
He was said to be the homeliest man in Wales. I have 
no doubt of it, as I saw him. 

We have unearthed an interesting family skele- 
ton. It will be noted that the inscription on Wil- 
liam Aubrey' s tombstone says that he was the son of 
Thomas Aubrey, and not of William who was the prior 
Lord of the Manor. The facts are that all of the 
children of Richard's first son, William, died before 
becoming of age, except Elizabeth, who was illegiti- 
mate, so he adopted her and then married her to his 
nephew, William, son of his brother, Thomas, in 1646, 
when both were under age, so as to secure the succes- 
sion to Llanelyw. A lawsuit by the legitimate line 
followed, but it was settled so that William remained 
Lord of the Manor. For first cousins they did pretty 
well, having ten children. I wonder why there are 
not two bar sinister s on the Aubrey Coat-of-Armsi 
Both William and Elizabeth became members of the So- 
ciety of Friends. 

Rees Thomas and Martha Aubrey were engaged to be 
married in Wales and Martha came over with the party 


of Sir John Bevan on the ship "Morning-star" which 
sailed from Masson in September 1683, and arrived in 
Philadelphia in November. They were the first per- 
sons to be married in the Haverford Meeting House on 
,18-4mo-1692. She is mentioned as a passenger in 
Rees's Certificate of Removal from the Welsh Meeting, 
dated July 16, 1691. We have no definite knowledge 
of the Thomas family, except that he was a relative 
of Sir John Bevan, and the Certificate says: "well 
descended of a good family." We quote a certificate 
of Removal (Lloyd Manuscripts, P. 294): 

"To o'r friends and Brethren in Pennsylvania we doe 
hereby signifie unto whom it may concern in the be- 
halfe of our dear brother Rees Thomas who have beene 
very servisable upon the account of trueth in all 
honest designe whom we doe in tender Love recom' ed 
unto as one that walked according to the order of 
trueth from his first convincement to O'r departure. 
And further the most of o'r meetings w' ch is the Pas- 
sengers may give you the same account he is of a meek 
and quiet disposition and well beloved of all sort. 
Well descended of a good family and further as far 
as wee doe understand he is not clear from Martha 
Aubrey one of the passengers wherein we have nothing 
to say against them in the least the w' ch we thought 
fitt to acquaint you as o'r incumbent duty to acquaint 
you all who are yo'r faithfull f rinds .

Sir John Bevan' s wife was Barbara Aubrey, the 
sister of Martha's father. Rees Thomas became one of 
the leaders in the Welsh Tract, and his wife one of 
the Elders of the Meeting. He was Justice of the 
Peace and Member of the Assembly in 1702, 1705, 1719, 
and 1720. 

Martha was a woman of exemplary character, and 
highly respected throughout the Province. Upon 
Martha's death in 7-12 mo. -1726, a Book of Elegies 
or poems to her was compiled and printed in 1727 by 
Samuel Keimer, in Second Street, Philadelphia. 


I am quoting a few lines from her elegies: 

"This worthy elder was so signalized for her 
virtues, that (like her dear, blessed and ever 
to be remembered sister in Christ, the late 
Hannah Hill)* I never could hear the malice of 
slander ever did so much as attack; a privilege 
that many of God' s dear children do not often 
en j oy . " 

#The wife of Richard Hill and daughter of Thomas 
Lloyd, the first deputy Governor under William Penn. 

"When her departure drew near, being asked by 
her husband, 'how it was with her', she answered 'she 
had nothing to obstruct her (implying her perfect 
resignation and peace of soul) , and that ever since 
she has been in this country, (which was about thirty- 
five years) she never had strife with any one." 
To quote from the elegies: 

"Her ancestors' high fame, so widely spread 
to Emulate, she lower paths did tread: 
And at CHRIST'S feet, to her, to see 'twas given 
They're high that walk the lowly way to Heaven." 

"Take after her example, all you of low degree 
That came into this land less powerful than she 
And let the Holy Spirit be now your daily guide, 
Which led this lowly Christian in favour out of 

"Upon her peaceful lips persuasion hung, 

Such as could charm the most approbrious tongue: 

She liv'd so inoffensively, that none 

For aught against her, o'er could hurl a stone." 

"Her graceful pattern in her lowly dress 
Hath from her youth declared her loveliness 
No minute's rest, nor swiftest thought she sold, 
To that loved plague of mankind, sordid gold." 

"But through forgiveness, patience, faith and 

Dear MARTHA reach' d the peaceful land above 
A kind and helpful neighbor all her life 
A tender mother and a loving wife 


Brought hither by a providential hand, 
To cherish virtue in this infant land. 
Her good example seal'd her precepts all, 
'Till she to Heaven heard the welcome call." 

Her life, may be fittingly summed up in the 
closing lines of one elegy: 

"Her pious life was wisely ordered so, 
When dying she had nothing else to do." 

When the Thomas' s first child arrived it was 
named Rees Jr., after his father. An indignant let- 
ter was shortly afterwards received from Martha' s 
father, Sir William Aubrey, indicating that he was 
offended because the boy was not named after him, 
who was of higher standing than the child's father. 
When another boy arrived and was named Aubrey, Martha 
and Rees wrote her father a joint letter; 

"In ye 29th day of ye second month 1695;" 
I doe understand yt thou were not well pleased 
yt my oldest son was not called an Aubrey. I will 
answer thee I was not against it, but my neighbors 
wood have him called my name, being (as) I brought 
ye Land, and I so beloved amongst them. I doe ad- 
mite to what thee sayes in thy letter yt an Aubrey 
was better known than I , though I am hear very well 
acquainted with most in these parts. He is ye first 
Aubrey in Pennsylvania and a stout boy of his age, 
being now a quarter." 

They complained that they "lost so much time go- 
ing to fairs and markets." "It was a hard winter 
(1695), they say they never saw ye like of it." 

Rees Thomas purchased a tract of land about 300 
acres in 1692, in what is now Rosemont, and a part of 
Bryn Mawr; when he died, he owned 650 acres there. 

The old homestead is located North of Montgomery 
Avenue just beyond Rosemont Station. The Misses Ash- 
bridge lived there until recently when the last sur- 
vivor bequeathed the house and what was left of the 
old farm to the Township of Lower Merion, Montgomery 
County, to be used for a public park and a Community 
Centre. A portion of the old stone house is the orig- 
inal and contains a dedication stone engraved: "Rees 
Thomas, 1709." 

Martha was an Elder of the Haverford Meeting, in 


spite of her dying words above quoted. There is a 
tradition (which came to me through my Aunt Corona 
Anderson) , that on one occasion she had words with 
Mrs. Curwin, under an old chestnut tree on her farm. 
Mrs. Curwin, being an Episcopalian, made a slighting 
remark about the Quakers, and our ancestor is re- 
ported to have replied: "Thou art a purse-proud 
fool." The old chestnut tree was still standing in 
my youth. It was located North of Montgomery Avenue 
on the front lawn of the property of the late Alba 
Johnson. The trunk remained for many years draped 
with wistaria vines. It was the largest trunk, in 
circumference, in the neighborhood. 

According to the records of the Haverford Meet- 
ing "Ye 18 4 mo. 1692" the couple were married by re- 
peating the following words: 

"The said Rees Thomas solemnly declared, friends 
I am standing here in the presence of God and before 
you I do take Martha Awbrey to be my wedded wife and 
by God' s assistance do promise to be true and loving 
and faithful unto her and to behave myself unto her 
as becomes a man to behave himself towards his wife 
so as to continue till death part us . In like manner 
the said Martha Awbrey said I am here in the presence 
of God and before you I also take Rees Thomas to be 
my husband and I do promise to love him and make much 
of him till death part us." 

We are assured that they kept their marriage

Now she has done with all the Mothers care, 

And gone I trust to meet her Saviour there; 

On the blessed banks where joy and peace excel, 

May she sing praises to Emanuel . 

In the paths of virtue, may her offspring always 

That when their course is run they may have no

Many were her exortations, to us while she did 


And her many kind examples, which I hope we

SIR JOHN BEVAN was one of seven prominent Welsh 
Quakers selected by William Penn to lead groups of 
settlers to establish the Welsh Tract in this coun- 
try. He lived on the Manor, known as "Treverigg," 
in the Parish of Llantrissant, County of Glamorgan- 
shire. On my trip to Wales I visited Treverigg. It 
is located just north of the coal mining section, not 
far from Cardiff. The manor house is a substantial 
plain stone dwelling, and the yard and garden are 
surrounded by a stone wall, eight to ten feet high. 
It is now occupied by a farmer, who is a tenant of 
the owner, a physician. The owner kindly gave me the 
brass knocker of the back door as a souvenir. There 
is a plain Quaker Meeting House nearby where the Bev- 
ans used to worship, and there was, for many years, a 
bronze plate containing the record of Sir John Bevan 
and family, but it had been stolen for the metal, 
just before we visited there. 

Sir John Bevan married Barbara, daughter of Wil- 
liam Aubrey of Pencoed or Pencoyd. She came over to 
this country with him in 1683. His niece, Martha Au- 
brey, also came with them. Sir John and Barbara Au- 
brey Bevan lived here until they returned to the old 
home in 1704. He says in his Journal: 

"Sometime before the year 1683 we heard that our 
esteemed friend, William Penn, had a Patent from King 
Charles the Second, for that province in America 
called Pennsylvania; and my wife had a great inclina- 
tion to go thither and thought it might be a good 
place to train up children amongst sober people and 
to prevent the corruption of them here by the loose 
behavior of the youth and the bad example of too many 
of those of riper years acquainted me there - with 
that I then thought it not likely to take effect for 
several years, but as I was sensible her aim was up- 
right on account of her children, I was willing to 
weigh the matter in a true balance and I can truly 
say, my way was made easy and clear to go thither, 
beyond my expectations; and it was the Lord's great 
mercy to preserve us over the great deep to our de- 
sired port; and what hardships we met at the begin- 
ning of our settlement, the Lord was our helper and 
support to go through and I can in the sweet remem- 


brance say, many were the blessed seasons we had with 
God's people in that remote country. We stayed there 
many years, and had four of our children married with 
our consent, and they had several children, and the 
aim intended by my wife, was in a good measure an- 

Of his connection with the Quakers, he writes: 

"My wife in her early life united with the 
Church of England remained a consistent member. 

"I saw it very needful for me to make a narrow 
search after the best way and those people who per- 
formed that worship and service that was acceptable 
before God and being in a weighty frame of mind and 
hearing of a book of George Fox the younger' s to be 
at a relation's house, I was willing to go thither 
for it, and in the reading thereof, I was so well 
satisfied that I can truly say and that I read an- 
swered the witness of God in my own bosom as face 
answereth face in the glass, and I united with that 

Telling of his wife's last illness six years 
later, he said: 

"In her last sickness she was sensible, she was 
not likely to recover out of it, she said: 'I take 
it as a great mercy that I am to go before thee, we 
are upwards of forty -five years married, and our love 
is rather more now towards one another than at the 
beginning' . 

"She quietly departed this life the 26th of the 
Eleventh month 1710, aged 73 years and about 4 months." 

Sir John was assigned 2,000 acres to sell. He 
himself lived in this country for twenty years and 
came to own a large acreage of ground. He was prom- 
inent in the affairs of the Welsh Tract, and the 
Province, having been a member of the Provincial As- 
sembly in 1687, 1693, and 1700 ; a Judge of the Court 
of Common Pleas of Philadelphia in 1685 and in Chester 
County in 1689. Sir John Bevan' s plantation of 300 
acres was located south of the present Wynnewood Sta- 
tion extending to Haverford Road on the south, and on 
the east to City Line. 

He purchased it from Thomas Wynne on May 12, 
1604. The homestead was South of Lancaster Avenue 
and the Beavan family occupied it for over 100 years. 

He returned to Wales in 1704, and died in his 


old home at "Treverigg" in the 80th year of his life 
in 1725. 

After his return to Wales he was prosecuted by 
the Vicar of the Parish for dues to the Established 
Church, and was confined to Cardiff Jail in 1721, 
but his lawyer found an error in the writ, and he 
was discharged at the following session of the Court, 
and ever after lived unmolested. It was written of 

"He was endowed with a good understanding in 
things spiritual and temporal, discreet and prudent 
in his way, of an unspotted life and conversation, 
grave and solid in his deportment, and careful to 
keep concord and unity among friends, constant and 
immovable against that which would divide and rend, 
yet laboring to restore those that were beguiled 
thereby. In his last sickness he had no small con- 
flict, but he was favored with much patience and pos- 
sessed his soul therein, and bore his indisposition 
to admiration. At one time, he said: 'Ever since I 
had the knowledge of the truth, I have endeavored to 
be innocent' . To a relation asking how he did, he 
answered: 'Weakly, but I find some strength to bear 
my weakness' " . 

Sir John Bevan was descended from the Kings of 
Britain, Wales and Ireland. He had eight ancestors 
who signed the Magna Charta. They are: John Fitz 
Robert, Robert DeVere, Saiaer de Quincy, Hugh Bigod, 
Roger Bigod, Richard De Clair, Gilbert De Clare, and 
Henry De Bohun. 


In case any member of the family would like to 
qualify for the Runnymede Society (i. e. descendants 
of the Barons who signed the Magna Carta) , our an- 
cestor, Sir John Bevan, was descended from eight of 
the Magna Carta Barons. They are: 

Henry De Bohun 

John Fitz Robert 

Robert De Vere 

Saire de Quincy 

Hugh Bigod 

Roger Bigod 

Richard De Clare 

Gilbert De Clare

Martha Crawford Anderson' s father was Joseph 
Crawford, who lived on Mt. Pleasant Farm; her mother 
was Hannah Yocum, descendant of Peter Yocum, who 
came over with the Swedes in 1643. The Yocums lived 
on Red Rose Farm adjoining. 

There is a magnificent view from the Mt. Pleas- 
ant Farm over the Schuylkill Valley. The house was 
restored by Moro Phillips and is one of the most 
charming colonial homes in the Philadelphia suburbs. 
The western end of the house was built in 1789. The 
property was purchased by Joseph Crawford from Joseph 
and Ann Broades, December 17, 1832. He built the 
middle portion of the house, the eastern end having 
been added recently. 

Joseph 1 s father was named William and his father, 
Alexander. Alexander is mentioned in a deed as a 
grocer and a lime burner. He bought a tract in 1771 
from the Norris Estate in Norristown and erected his 
house on what is now the South side of Sandy Street 
opposite Marshall. The farm was subsequently pur- 
chased by Walter H. Cooke, and a part of it known as 
Cooke's forest is now a public park. 

Alexander's father was named Andrew, who lived 
in Plymouth and was a lime burner. His father, also, 
Andrew, was the pioneer of the line, settling in 
Plymouth in 1720, having immigrated from the North of 
Ireland. He was an elder in the Norriton Presby- 
terian Church on Germantown Pike. It was restored 
in 1940 by his descendant, John L. Crawford, of Bryn 
Mawr . 

Andrew Sr. died 1789 and left a most interest- 
ing will which shows how they treated their wives in 
those days. 

I am quoting that part of his will which pro- 
vides for his widow. 

Joseph Crawford had three brothers, Samuel, An- 
drew and William. 

Andrew was a bachelor and saved his money. When 
he died his Estate was appraised at $225,000. I remem- 
ber Mother telling me he lived with his brother, Jo- 
seph, and when he went to Philadelphia he walked all 
the way there and back to "save the money." 

Joseph's son, JohnY. Crawford, purchased the 


homestead and farmed it. He was an able business man 
and a leading citizen in the community. He was an 
organizer and director of the National .Bank of Con- 
shohoken, and is responsible for the building of the 
road to the river, now part of the Conshohocken State 
Road. He also promoted and heavily supported the 
Mount Pleasant Sunday School. 


"TO MY WIFE, SARAH, I give and bequeath the in- 
terest from one-hundred pounds, to be paid in gold 
or silver money of Pennsylvania, yearly, and every 
year, during the term of her natural life. Also to 
the said Sarah, I give and bequeath the feather-bed 
on which she now ordinarily sleeps, bed-sted, bed- 
bottom, bolster and pillows, two good sheets, two 
blankets new, one rug, and one coverlet; my best 
case of drawers, and all the pewter she possessed at 
the time of our marriage; also, my best end irons, 
shovel and tongs, small brass kettle, one iron pot, 
at her choice; and, what she may chose to take of 
all the thread, yarn, linen (not made up) , grain, 
meal, and other provisions for family use which may 
to me pertain immediately before my decease. 

"Also to said Sarah, I give and bequeath for 
the duration of her natural life, and widowhood only, 
my riding mare and good side-saddle, a cow at her op- 
tion, and good keeping for one cow and one horse, or 
mare, summer and winter; a full Tea equipage, includ- 
ing also a Tea table, tea kettle, and coffee pot, six 
good chairs, my family Bible, Burkets' Exposition, 
and Watt's Psalms and Hymns; also, the sole use of 
the parlor and bed-chamber in the west end of my pres- 
ent dwelling house, such part of the garden as she 
may choose, and the common use of the cellar and 
kitchen and spring-house. A constant supply of good 
fire-wood brought to her door, and cut the proper 
length for her fire-place . 

"Also 20 bushels of good merchantable wheat, 10 
bushels good merchantible Indian corn, and 10 bushels 
good merchantible buckwheat to be delivered to her 
yearly, and every year during the term of her natural 
life, and widowhood. The first render at one year 
next after my decease. 


"The above to be in full consideration of the 
dower of my said wife, and in lieu thereof." 


Although some difference of opinion exists on 
the part of experts as to the origin of the surname, 
Crawford, most antiquarians suppose it to have been 
derived from Gaelic Cru, meaning bloody and ford , a 
pass or way - thus standing for the "Pass of Blood." 
This, probably, was reminiscent of some warlike con- 
flict between the Roman invaders and the Aborigines 
in ancient Britain. A few other authorities have de- 
rived the name from the ancient words Crodh and Cort , 
which, when combined signify "a sheltering place for 
cattle." Early in the 12th century the most remote 
ancestor of the family of Crawford in Scotland, Reg- 
inald, youngest son of Alan, the Fourth Earl of Rich- 
mond, accompanied King David the First of the north 
country, and there received extensive grants of land 
in Strath Cluyd of Clyesdale. There his immediate 
descendants remained, adopted the name of Crawford, 
and formed one of the largest baronies in all Scot- 
land . 

The first Crawford to use the surname was one 
Galfridus de Crawfurd, this name first appearing as 
the signature of a witness to a Scottish document ex- 
ecuted about the year 1189. Thus it appears that the 
family of Crawford, established at a place of the 
name in Lanark County, and possessing hereditary lands 
of the designation, adopted the fixed surname of Craw- 
ford; and as time passed and surnames were more com- 
monly used it became the family name. 

In Scotland, the Crawfords were Barons, and while 
Scotland remained a separate kingdom they ruled the 
country as members of the Council of Barons. 

Sir Archibald de Crawford, a cadet of the main 
line, married about 1200, Margaret, daughter and 
heiress of James de Loudon, and dying 1229, was suc- 
ceeded by his son, Hugh Crawford of Loudon, Sheriff 
of Ayr. His son, another Hugh, was father of Sir 
Archibald, the Sheriff, who was treacherously mur- 
dered by the English at a banquet in Ayr, 1297, and 
a daughter, Margaret, who married Sir Malcolm Wallace 
of Ellerslie, and was mother of the patriot . Sir 
Archibald's granddaughter, Susan Crawford, heiress of 


Loudon, carried that estate into the House of Camp- 
bell, and the representation of the Crawfords is un- 
derstood to have devolved upon Crawford of Auchinames 
(deriving from a brother of Sir Archibald) , a house 
which originated in a grant of Auchinames from Robert 
the Bruce in 1320. The male line continued unbroken 
until the death of Archibald Crawford, 14th of Auch- 
inames, when his daughter, Jane, succeeded and mar- 
ried a kinsman, Patrick Crawford of Drumsoy. Their 
son, Patrick, succeeded to Auchinames, and his son, 
John Crawfurd, 18th of Auchinames, M.P., was awarded 
arms and supporters by Lyon Court, 1789. He was suc- 
ceeded by his cousin, John Crawfurd, 19th of Auchi- 
names, by whose grandson, Hugh R. G. Crawfurd, 21st 
of Auchinames, this old estate has been sold. He is 
the present chief of the Crawfords, and resides in 
Alberta, Canada. 

Craufurd of Craufurdland derives from a younger 
son of Sir Reginald de Craufurd and Margaret de Lou- 
don, who married Alicia de Dalsalloch. Ardoch, 
otherwise called Craufurdland, was confirmed to the 
6th Laird by Robert III, in 1931, and has continued 
uninterruptedly in the family, down to the present 
laird, J. D. Houison-Craufurd, 25th of Craufurdland. 

The Craufurds of Kilbirnie are another ancient 
branch of the clan, whose origin is deduced from Sir 
John Craufurd of Crauf ordjohn, living about 1255. 
Kilbirnie was acquired in 1499. A baronetcy was 
conferred on this branch in 1781.

Peter Yocum was a Dane from Schleswig-Holstein 
who came over on the Ship Swan with the Swedish set- 
tlers in 1643 and settled at Upland, now Chester, in 
Delaware County, Pa. His name appears in the early 
records spelled in various ways; usually Jochim or 
Joachim. He married Judith Nilsson in this country, 
who was Swedish, and the daughter of Jonas Nilsson, 
a sailor who came over in 1654 in the ship Gyllene 

Haf . 

The new Sweden Company was organized by certain 
prominent Swedes and Dutch for trade with the Indians 
in America, and sent as settlers on the Delaware, 
soldiers, employees of the company and serfs who 
worked for it without pay, and freeman who established 
plantations of their own. Peter was a soldier. 

We are descended from him through the Crawford- 
Yocum line. Our Grandmother was Martha Yocum Craw- 
ford before she married Isaac Anderson. She spent 
her childhood in the Crawford Homestead known as Mt. 
Pleasant Farm opposite Conshohocken and north of 
Villa Nova. Nearby was the old Yocum Homestead in 
which John Yocum then resided. His daughter, Han- 
nah, married our great grandfather, Joseph Crawford. 
The old Crawford Homestead, now belongs to Benjamin 
Eschelman and has been beautifully restored and ap- 
propriately furnished with antiques. The old Yocum 
Homestead nearby is a charming old house and the es- 
tate is called Red Rose Farm and is the home of J. 
Kearsley Mitchell. Both are charming types of early 
Colonial homes. Originally it was the Red Rose Inn. 

The first settlement in what is now Pennsyl- 
vania was made by Governor Printz in 1643 at Tinicum 
Island, which is on the West bank of the Delaware 
River, east of Folsom, Delaware County and below the 
City Airport (Hog Island). In that year Yocum served 
as a soldier under Printz at Fort Elfsborg, on the 
east bank of the Delaware, near the present town of 
Salem, N.J. Peter was a gruff character. He was 
picked by Governor Printz to break into the Dutch 
Fort Beaversreede (Beaver Trade) at night and tear 
down the building which they had erected. He had 
formerly served in Col. Printz' s regiment under the 
Swedish King and great General, Gustavus Adolphus, 


in the 30 Years War. 

There were some English already settled near Fort 
Elfsborg, from the New Haven Company, and Printz lo- 
cated the fort there to dominate them and also to con- 
trol commerce on the Delaware. Any ship coming up the 
river was compelled to anchor opposite the fort and 
pay toll to get permission from the Governor to pro- 
ceed up the river. The mosquitoes were so terrific 
there, that the soldiers called it Fort Mosquitoborg. 

The Dutch had a trading post on the Jersey shore 
opposite League Island, known as Fort Nassau. This 
was under the command of Commissary Andreas Hudde, 
who was employed by the Dutch West Indies Company. At 
this time the Dutch and the Swedes were friendly in 
Europe and their representatives in this country were 
warned against hostilities. They were, however, riv- 
als for trade with the Indians. By far the most val- 
uable article of trade was the beaver skin and these 
were brought by the Iroquois from the Susquehanna 
River region, one trail coming down the Southwest 
side of the Schuylkill from above Reading, and an- 
other over the Conestoga trail from Pequea, Lancaster 
County, on the Susquehanna River, and running through 
Delaware County, joining the other trail on the West 
bank of the Schuylkill near the bend, now called Point 
Breeze, then known as Passyunk, from the Indian vil- 
lage nearby. Hudde undertook to build a trading post 
on the east bank of the river, with a stockade around 
it, so as to intercept the Indians at the junction of 
both trails on the opposite bank of the river, where 
the Swedes had a post. Printz protested but without 
avail. In Hudde' s report to the Dutch Governor of 
New Amsterdam he complains: "A Swedish settler named 
Peter Jochim by way of contempt and by night force- 
ably tore off and broke through the palisade using 
great violence as well by acts as by words." This 
happened in 1646. 

In 1647 there was a dispute between the Swedes 
and Dutch about the title to certain lands on the 
west bank of the Delaware River below Chester. The 
Dutch claimed it by grant from an Indian by the name 
of Peminacka, from whom the Pennypack Creek in Phila- 
delphia is probably named. The Swedes claimed it by 
grant from Chief Mitatsimint, who was then dead. 
Printz had a document drawn which was signed by all 


of the heirs of Mitatsimint to the effect that the 
Chief had never granted the title to the Dutch, but 
only the right to hunt on the land, but that he had 
retained the title which he subsequently conveyed to 
the Swedes. This document was signed by several of 
the Swedish settlers, among whom was Peter Yocum. 

In 1653 there was a revolt among the colonists 
against Governor Johan Printz. Peter Yocum joined 
with twenty-two other settlers in signing the com- 
plaint naming eleven grievances against Printz, which 
were presented to him and forwarded to Sweden. The 
petition charged that the Colony was at no hour se- 
cure as to life and property; they complained that 
they were prohibited from trading with the Indians or 
Christians although the Governor did so at all times. 
He was also accused of passing judgment in the court 
in his own favor against the opinions of the jury and 
of forbidding the colonists to grind their flour at 
the mill, or fish in the waters, cut trees in the 
woods or use the land to plant on. 

The leader of the revolt was arrested, tried, 
convicted and executed on August 1, 1653. There is 
no record, however, of prosecution of Peter Yocum. 
Governor Printz was arbitrary and dictatorial and there 
was undoubtedly cause of complaint but he was dealing 
with a rough group and he was the representative of 
New Sweden Company which financed the settlement and 
reserved all profits from trade with the Indians to 
themselves. Printz answered that only Tinicum Island 
was denied the settlers as it was reserved for him 
and he was given title to it. He wrote to Sweden in 
1650 that there were not thirty men under his charge 
whom he could trust. 

That autumn Printz returned to Sweden and John 
Rising was appointed Governor in his place. 

Shortly before, in 1651, the Dutch had erected 
a fort near New Castle, Delaware, known as Fort Casi- 
mir. Governor Rising, on arriving in this country, 
took possession of the fort and made the Dutch swear 
allegiance to the Queen of Sweden. At that time Peter 
Stuyvesant was Governor of New Netherlands. Rising 
sent him a letter explaining his action, saying that 
he had instructions to do so from Her Royal Majesty 
of Sweden, and suggesting a personal conference to 
iron out their differences. He sent this letter by 


Peter Yocum in 1655, who travelled on foot with an 
Indian guide. Peter never returned but died in New 
Amsterdam. It is said that he was poisoned by bad 
liquor which the Dutch gave him. The fact is that 
he was buried in New Amsterdam, and the Dutch sent a 
bill to the Swedish Colony for 127 florins, for the 
expense of his burial. A florin was worth about half 
a shilling. The Indian who accompanied Peter re- 
turned to New Sweden with letters on July 25th of 
that year. 

Peter' s son, also named Peter, lived on the east 
bank of the Schuylkill south of the Wissahickon, 
which the Indians called Nittabakonck (place where 
heroes reside) from the Indian village situated there. 
He married Judith Hance and died in 1702. 

After William Penn received his Charter for the 
Colony of Pennsylvania he had his surveyor, Thomas 
Holme, report on the land owned by the Swedes. In 
1684 he records Peter Jocumbe as owning 400 acres, 
ten of which were cleared. William Penn issued him 
a patent for the land dated January 22, 1684. At 
that time Peter, 3rd, was thirty years old. He was 
the grandson of the original Peter who died 29 years 
before. Peter Yocum, 3rd gave 50 gelders for the 
support of Rev. Joseph Fabrituis, pastor of Gloria 
Dei (Old Swedes) Church, built in 1677. The records 
of the Church in 1698 show that he resided in Nitap- 
kung (which is the same as Nittabakonck) at the Falls 
of the Schuylkill. His wife was named Julia and his 
children were: Peter, Mounts, Catherine, Charles, 
Swan, Julia, Jonas, Andrew, John and Mary, and he 
adopted an Indian boy. 

On November 13, 1677, Peter Yocum second, was 
one of a group of settlers who petitioned the court 
at Upland (Chester) for the privilege of establish- 
ing a town on the west bank of the Delaware below 
the Falls (Trenton) . The petition was not granted. 
This was near the site on which William Penn after- 
wards built his residence known as Pennsbury. This 
site was excavated by the boys of the National Youth 
Administration, when I was State Director, and among 
other things they found Penn' s brewing kettle and 
quantities of broken church warden clay pipes. The 
beautiful mansion has been rebuilt and appropriately 
furnished by the Pennsylvania State Historical Com- 


You may be interested to know that the State 
has acquired that portion of Tinicum Island on which 
Governor Printz built his principal fort, New Gotten- 
burg. Within the fort he erected a large log house 
for his residence and seat of Government and also a 
storage house, a church and a brewery (the first in 
America) . The Governor weighed 400 pounds and is 
said to have drunk three flagons of beer every meal; 
a flagon is about two quarts. He was an arbitrary 
old cuss and ruled with a rod of iron and while Gov- 
ernor dominated the English and the Dutch settlements 
on the Delaware. 

After John Rising had captured Fort Casimir, 
Peter Stuyvesant sent seven shiploads of soldiers to 
the Delaware and captured all of the Swedish forts. 
They remained under the control of the Dutch until 
1664 when the English took possession. At that time 
there were about 400 Swedes living in and around 

Peter, the third (1678-1753) with a group of 
Swedes moved up the west bank of the Schuylkill and 
established the town of Swedeland, Montgomery County, 
below Bridgeport and across the river from Norris- 

Several of our forefathers were buried in Old 
Christ Church located in that vicinity. The earlier 
generations were buried in the Old Swedes Church, 
"Gloria Dei" in South Philadelphia, which is the old- 
est Church in the State. 

Hannah, the daughter of our great-great-grand- 
father, John Yocum, married Joseph Crawford, and their 
daughter, Martha, was our grandmother and wife of 
Isaac W. Anderson. 

John's son, Benjamin, had eleven children. His 
daughter, Juliana, married Isaac DeHaven; her sister, 
Emily, was the beauty of the family but never married, 
having had a tragic love affair in her youth. 

Benjamin's son, J. Hagy Yocum, married grand- 
mother Anderson's sister, Emily, who was his first 
cousin. They had only one child, Anna, who married 
William Brownback, and they had two daughters, Emily 
Yocum and Helen Estell. Emily married Walter Olcott 
Smith on April 4, 1929, and she died April 6, 1930, 
leaving a daughter, Emily. Her widower married her 
sister, Helen, on April 6, 1932. They are now living 


at 1660 Lombardy Road, Pasadena, California. Helen 
writes me that her stepdaughter is the seventh Emily 
Yocum in line of descent. 

Hagy Yocum' s brother, Isaac DeHaven, was a prom- 
inent member of the Philadelphia bar, whom I knew 
when I first began to practice. My mother and his 
son, I. DeHaven, Jr., have told me how fond he was 
of practical jokes. DeHaven was in the insurance 
business in Philadelphia and died April 10, 1946, 
leaving surviving his wife, Elizabeth, and daughter, 


Dr. George P. Yocum of Ardmore is the son of 
Horatio L. of Ardmore, born July 51, 1870, who was 
the son of George P. Yocum, who married Mary Litzen- 
berg, daughter of Horatio. George's father was Ben- 
jamin B . Yocum. 

Other prominent members of the Yocum family are 
Howard H. Yocum of the Philadelphia Bar, and the late 
Prof. Albert Duncan Yocum of the University of Penn- 
sylvania, and Thomas Yocum of Beach Haven, N.J.

We are descended from the DeHaven family through 
the Yocums. John Yocum, our great-great-grandfather, 
married Elizabeth De Haven. 

Four DeHaven brothers, Samuel, Jacob, Edward, 
and Peter came to America about 1750 from a province 
of France along the German border. 

We are descended from Samuel, born 1724, died 
1815. Jacob was the most distinguished of the 
brothers. He attained great wealth through the West 
Indies trade, owning several ships. His only son was 
killed in the Battle of Germantown, so that there are 
no descendants of his through the male line. 

During the winter of 1777, when Washington was 
at Valley Forge and Congress had run out of supplies 
and its credit was gone and the currency so depreci- 
ated that it had practically no value, Robert Morris 
undertook to raise money to save the Revolution. 
Jacob DeHaven then advanced, in gold and other prop- 
erty and supplies, the sum of $450,000.00, and loaned 
it to the Government. 

When a claim was presented for reimbursement to 
the Continental Congress it offered to pay in paper 
money which was then so depreciated in value as to be 
almost worthless, and DeHaven refused to accept it. 
The claim has been submitted to United States Congress 
at various times but has never been paid and now 
amounts to more than $4,000,000.00. The history of 
the DeHaven family and of the record of the claim are 
found in the book by Howard DeHaven Ross, Ph.D. of 
the University of Pennsylvania, published in 1929. 

Jacob and Samuel owned large tracts of ground in 
Upper and Lower Merion Townships near the Gulph. They 
originally settled in the Swedish Settlement near 
Philadelphia, and the early members of the family are 
buried in Old Swedes Church. 

Samuel was a Revolutionary soldier in the Phila- 
delphia County Militia, First Battalion, Fifth Com- 
pany. (See Pennsylvania Archives 1775-83, 2nd Series, 
Vol. 13, and Pennsylvania in the Revolution , Vol. 1, 
page 722.) He loaned $17,000.00 to the Continental 
Congress during the war. 

Samuel's brother, Peter, had three powder and 
gun factories, one at Third and Cherry Streets, Phila- 



delphia; one on the French Creek, and one at Hummels- 
town. From these he furnished a substantial amount 
of arms to the Revolutionary Army. The Philadelphia 
plant was taken over by the British when they cap- 
tured the city, and as they threatened the French 
Creek shop, he moved it to Reading. 

The fourth brother, Edward, migrated to Kentucky. 

The old DeHaven homestead was located on Rebel 
Hill near the Gulph. Jacob DeHaven gave the ground 
on which the old Christian (Campbelite) Church is lo- 



Eees Thomas and Martha Aubrey were the 
first couple to be married here 

Built 1788 - Rebuilt 1838 - Where Joseph 
Sutton and Mary Clendennin were married 

in 1801 




The first of the family known to have migrated 
to this country was John Sutton, born 1610 (married 
Juliana) who came to Massachusetts in 1638 from At- 
tleborough, England. He was a Quaker. His son, Wil- 
liam Sutton, (1641-1718) lived in Eastham, on Cape 
Cod, where he became a large land owner. He moved to 
Piscataway Township, Middlesex County, N.J., in 1672, 
where he purchased 259 acres from the Proprietors of 
East New Jersey in 1685 and 1687. He had a son, 
Daniel, who was probably buried in the graveyard of 
St. Mary's Episcopal Church, Burlington, New Jersey, 
and the oldest gravestone in the cemetery records his 
death, March 10, 1711. Father said he was an ances- 
tor of ours. 

Grandfather's two brothers were said to have 
gone to Illinois and settled on a tract of ground 
which was granted to their father, Joseph, for his 
service in the War of 1812. (According to the Records 
in the National Archives he was granted Military Boun- 
ty Warrant to Northwest l/4 Section 9, Township 1 
South, Range 8 West, in Adams County, Illinois, on May 
15, 1818. Recorded Vol. 15 p. 467 Bureau of Land War- 
rant Patent Records.) 

The name is derived from "Sudh" meaning "South" 
and "ton" meaning "town." Our name is said to have 
been taken from "Sutton-on-the-Trent." 

The family of the Suttons dates from the 11th 
Century in England, the first Lord Sutton being Hervy, 
tenant of Earl Allen of Sudton, 1049, who was grand- 
son of King Henry I and Anne of France, 1000-1060. 

Our father, William Henry Sutton, was the son of 
Reverend Henry Sutton and Ann Craig. Grandfather was 
a Methodist clergyman. Among his charges were Haddon- 
field, New Jersey, Smyrna and Dover, Delaware; and Mt. 
Pleasant Meeting 1885, (now the Radnor Church, Rose- 
mont) where he had five churches in his circuit. It 
is interesting that our mother' s family attended old 
Radnor Church, and our Anderson grandparents and 
great-grandparents were buried there . Our great- 
grandparents and some of their fifteen children were 
moved to the graveyard of the Church of the Redeemer, 
Bryn Mawr, by my great Aunt Corona Anderson, as she 
wished to be buried in "consecrated ground" and wanted 


to have her family with her in the same lot. The 
obelisk to our grandfather, Isaac W. Anderson, stands 
in the Radnor graveyard. Father was 19 years of age 
and mother seven when grandfather Sutton preached 
there. The highest salary he ever received was 
$600.00 a year with which he had to maintain a horse 
and carriage, and support his family. 

I remember our grandmother, Ann Craig Sutton, 
as a typical old-fashioned grandmother, with her lace 
cap and straight hair parted in the middle. She was 
a large but a fine looking woman and was renowned 
for her exceptional wit and good judgment. She was 
very much respected and loved by her husband' s par- 

Grandfather was born on a farm near Princeton, 
New Jersey, and as a young man was brought up as a 
Presbyterian. He came to Philadelphia from Trenton, 
where he became a Methodist Minister. He attended 
old St. George's Church, on Fourth Street, Philadel- 
phia, the oldest Methodist Episcopal Church in ex- 
istence. Grandmother sang in the choir - hence the 
romance. He was married to Ann Craig on April 15, 
1823, by the Reverend Levi Scott. Her father, James 
Craig, and her mother, came from the North of Ire- 
land. Both parents died of the Yellow Fever during 
the epidemic in this City. James was a manufacturer 
of shoes and left a considerable estate in the hands 
of his brother for the benefit of his two daughters, 
but when they became of age the money was gone. They 
both taught school for a living. 

Our great-grandfather, Joseph Sutton, of Cran- 
bury, Middlesex County, N.J., fought in the War of 
1812. He married Mary Clendennin in 1801 in the 
Cranbury First Presbyterian Church. She was the 
daughter of Isaac Clendennin who was a soldier in 
the Revolutionary War. My father told me that he 
had heard his father say: "My father was a soldier 
in the War of 1812 and my grandfather was a soldier 
in the Revolutionary War, and I am a soldier in the 
Army of our Lord Jesus Christ." Joseph was probably 
descended from the pioneer, William Sutton of Piscat- 
away, also in Middlesex County. The National Archives 
give his birthplace as New Brunswick, N.J. 

Joseph enlisted in 1812 in the Fifteenth U.S. 
Infantry, and was honorably discharged at Boston, 


Mass., at the expiration of his enlistment, in 1817. 
He was born in Middlesex County in 1779, was about 
five feet ten inches tall, with sandy complexion, 
blue eyes and dark hair, (i got this from a memor- 
andum in father's handwriting.) He served as Ser- 
geant in Captain Barnet's Company, 15th Infantry and 
as Officer in Captain John L. Eastman's Company, U.S. 
Light Artillery Regiment. 

The Fifteenth Regiment participated in the Cana- 
da campaign and took part in the battle of La Colle 
River, Lower Canada, October 1812; also in the battle 
and capture of York, Upper Canada, April 27, 1813; 
the battle and capture of Fort George, Canada, May 27, 
1813; the battle at French's Creek, New York, Novem- 
ber 1 and 2, 1813; the siege, battle and capture of 
Plattsburg, New York, September 6 to 11, 1814; the 
battle and sortie from Fort Erie, Canada, September 
17, 1814; and the battle of Cook's Mills, Canada, Oc- 
tober 19, 1814. 

An original grant from the proprietors of East- 
ern New Jersey was made to William Sutton on February 
17, 1685, of a house and lot of twenty-two acres in 
Piscataway Township, and on March 20, 1687 they con- 
veyed to him 125 acres in the -bounds of the town of 
Piscataway, twenty -five acres of which was to Jane, 
his wife. William Sutton was a pillar of the Quaker 
Meeting at Woodbridge, near Piscataway, and was con- 
stable and town clerk. The old Sutton farm lies on 
Sutton Lane, across the river from New Brunswick, in 
Piscataway Township, and a number of Suttons are bur- 
ied in Piscataway town, in the old St. James Episcopal 
Church graveyard. The Township of Piscataway was set- 
tled by families from New England, mostly from Piscat- 
aqua (great deer river) New Hampshire. It was chart- 
ered in 1666 as "Piscataway and Woodbridge, Olde New 
Jersey" and contained 40,000 acres. William married 
Damaris Bishop in 1666, who died in 1682; and on Janu- 
ary 3, 1683, he took, as his second wife, Jane Barnes. 
His children by Damaris were, Alice, 5/13/68; Thomas, 
11/11/69, m. Mary Adams; Mary 10/4/71, m. Daniel Mc 
Daniel; John 4/20/74; Judah, 1/24/75; Richard, 7/18/76; 
Joseph, 7/2/78 (d. 82); Benjamin, 2/20/79 (d. 82); 
Daniel, 2/25/80 and, child of Jane, Joseph, 9/11/93. 

Damaris was the daughter of Richard Bishop, who 
married, December 5, 1644, Alice Martin (1619-1648) 


daughter of Christopher Martin (d. January 18, 1621), 
a Mayflower passenger. 

Isaac Clendennin, of Kingston, Somerset County, 
N. J., was a private in John Swain's detachment of 
Captain John Searing' s Company, Colonel Frederick 
Frelinghuysen' s First Regiment, Somerset County, New 
Jersey Militia, May 30, 1778, and private in Capt. 
Sebring' s Company, same regiment, in 1780 and served 
under Col. Silvanus. 

William Henry Sutton, our father, was born in 
Haddonfield, New Jersey, where his father had his 
first pastorate in 1835, on September 26th, 1836. 
Father died March 14, 1914. His engraved portrait 
in the Wesleyan University Year Book of 1857 shows 
him to have been a handsome young man, which was col- 
laborated by mother. He attended Dickinson College, 
Pennsylvania, until the spring of his Sophomore Year, 
when smallpox broke out, and the students were sent 
home. In the fall he obtained a position as a teach- 
er in the Home School, about half a mile from Morton, 
in Springfield Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, 
where he helped to organize the Union Sunday School, at 
Morton, which was non-denominational. 

Subsequently he finished his college course at 
Wesleyan University, Middletown, Conn., graduating in 
1857. While in college he became a member of the Vet- 
rian Society, and after his graduation, was initiated 
into the Psi Upsilon Fraternity. His four sons and 
two of his grandsons became members of the same fra- 
ternity . 

After graduation, father taught in the Deaf and 
Dumb School in Hartford, Conn., at the same time as 
Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, 
who' became his life-long friend. He afterwards stud- 
ied law at the Albany Law School, and graduated in 
1861. Father then came to Philadelphia, and served 
his preceptorship in the office of William M. Mere- 
dith, Esq., a leader of the Philadelphia Bar. During 
that time he lived with the family of George Bakewell 
Earp in Delaware County, and paid for his keep by 
tutoring the Earp children. 

My grandmother persuaded father not to go into 
the Army of the Republic during the Civil War, as he 
was her sole support, grandfather being incapacitated. 
He was a member of the Pennsylvania Militia, however, 


and was alerted at the time of the Battle, of Gettys- 
burg, and prepared for conflict in case the Federal 
Army should be defeated. 

While living at the Earps, father became Super- 
intendent of Union Sunday School, Morton, Delaware 
County, and later was superintendent of Kedron Metho- 
dist Sunday School, which took over the Union Sunday 
School, and served in that capacity for six years. 
During that time he introduced a Melodeon into the 
School, which almost broke up the church; Some mem- 
bers contended God should be praised only with the 
human voice, and not by a "box." 

Father became prominent in the Conference, hav- 
ing been a delegate to the Laymen' s Conference of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church for many years, and to the 
World Ecumenical Methodist Conference held in London, 

He made a wide reputation as a young lawyer by 
his conduct of a murder trial, representing the Com- 
monwealth as Special Counsel in the prosecution of 
Henry Wahlen. This has become one of the famous mur- 
der cases of the country, and has since been special- 
ly written about, an account appearing in the Phila- 
delphia Evening Ledger, July 2, 1933. 

Some boys discovered the bones of a human foot 
sticking out of the bank along the Pennsylvania Rail- 
road near Elm Station, now Narberth, and reported it. 
Upon excavation, the skeleton was found to be without 
clothing except for a stiff -bosom white shirt of un- 
usual make. With this as a clue, the detectives dis- 
covered the maker of the shirt in an obscure town in 
Germany, and an advertisement in the German papers 
brought a letter from the parents of the murdered man, 
Max Hugo Hoehne. The murderer was eventually appre- 
hended and at the trial of the case, which lasted 
many days, was finally convicted. He committed sui- 
cide in his cell. At the conclusion of his speech, 
father received the congratulations of the judge and 
the members of the bar. The case created wide inter- 
est throughout this country and in Europe , 

Father was an able jury lawyer. Judge Audenreid, 
of the Common Pleas Court of Philadelphia, after 
father's death called me to his chambers and told me 
that he considered father one of the ablest trial 
lawyers at the Philadelphia bar. He recalled one 


occasion when father, by his appeal to the Jury, ob- 
tained a verdict, although he, the Judge, had in- 
structed the Jury to the contrary; that he, the 
judge, granted a new trial, and at the second trial 
father. took the Jury away from him a second time. 
This time he permitted the verdict to stand. 

He was a delegate to the American Bar Associa- 
tion from the Philadelphia Bar in 1911, and was ap- 
pointed a member of the Comparative Law Bureau. He 
received the degree of L.L.D. and of D.C.L. from 
Dickinson College. 

You will remember father was bald, wore a full 
beard, and always wore a frock coat and high hat. He 
drove fast horses, and was thrown and injured several 
times, but it never seemed to weaken his nerve, and 
he went right on the same course, much to mother' s 
apprehension. He never allowed any one to pass him 
on the highway if he could help it. He was a father 
of the "old school" and lord and master of his own 
home . The girls will remember that when they had 
callers and the clock struck ten o' clock, he would 
start to close the shutters; if that hint was not 
sufficient, he would call from the library to his 
daughter, and a reminder would be given that it was 
ten o'clock. Every Sunday night he held prayers, 
read from the Bible, and we all sang hymns, one chos- 
en by each of the family and guests. 

I never saw him do any work with his hands, 
which incidentally were beautifully shaped. There was 
one exception - he would walk around his estate, and 
he would occasionally pull up a dock weed, which he 

A leading Democrat, he could make a rousing po- 
litical speech, being an old-time orator with a pow- 
erful speaking voice. 

Elected to the State Senate in 1883, he served 
till 1887, when Hon. Robert J. Patterson was gover- 
nor, having run on a fusion ticket in protest against 
the alleged corruption of Republican machine and Boss 
Matt Quay, (whose mother, incidentally was an Ander- 
son!) . At that time the Pennsylvania Railroad ran 
the Legislature of Pennsylvania by various means, 
among which was the issuing of passes to all of the 
Legislators and their families. Father introduced a 
Bill which was passed, prohibiting a railroad from 


issuing passes to any public official. He was the 
leader for the Democratic Administration in the Sen- 
ate. There was an alliance between the Democratic 
and Independent Republican parties under. Lewis R. 
Emery, a wealthy oil-man from up State. 

A prominent Mason, father went through the 
Chairs and ultimately became Eminent Commander of 
the Knights Templar of Montgomery County. He organ- 
ized the Mongtomery Chapter at Ardmore and the Mason- 
ic Lodge in Media, Delaware County. He was a candi- 
date for Judge in the Montgomery County on the Demo- 
cratic ticket, but was defeated. The Merion Title 
and Trust Company of Ardmore and the West Philadel- 
phia Title and Trust Company were both organized in 
his office. 

Mother was a remarkable woman, having had ten 
children and raised nine. She was always full of 
energy and fun. She labored vainly to have all of 
her children learn music but with meager results. 
How often she would gather us around the piano for a 
sing. When she was a young lady it is said that she 
was "the life of the party." The Haverford College 
students would collect at her home where they could 
have music, as it was not allowed on the campus at 
the time . 

In all her life I never heard mother say an un- 
kind word about anyone. Until she had a nervous 
breakdown, following grandmother's death and my re- 
turn from the Spanish War with typhoid fever, she 
was practically never ill. 

Mother would go into ecstasy over anything 
beautiful, such as a sunset or other beauty of na- 
ture or object of art, and she was passionately fond 
of classical music. 

She was a devoted wife and mother, and a fine 
Christian character, and lived her religion. To all 
of us, her example was our greatest heritage. She 
lived for her family and for helpfulness to others. 

■ From Minutes of Wilmington Conference 



"Rev. Henry Sutton was born near Princeton, N.J., 
July 20, 1808, and died in the City of Philadelphia, 


March 23, 1876. His father died when he was quite 
young. His mother and grandparents were pious mem- 
bers of the Presbyterian Church and he was trained 
in the Confession of Faith of that Church. Leaving 
home at an early age, he resided for some time in 
the City of Trenton, and attended the Methodist 
Episcopal Church. In his eighteenth year he was con- 
verted at a prayer meeting held in a private house in 
Trenton, and joined the M.E. Church. 

"He commenced his itinerant ministry in 1834, on 
the Georgetown Circuit, travelling under the author- 
ity of the Presiding Elder, Rev. George Bunghart. In 
1835, he was admitted on trial in the Philadelphia 
Conference, and was sent to the Morristown Circuit. 
The following year he was sick and took no appoint- 
ment. In 1837-8 he was on the Springfield Circuit, 
Pennsylvania; 1839-40, Susquehanna Mission; 1841, 
Marshalton, Chester County; 1842-3, Smyrna, Delaware; 
1844-5, Centreville, Maryland; 1846-7, Dover, Dela- 
ware; 1848, Church Hill, Maryland; 1849, Mauch Chunk, 
Pa.; 1850-1, Dauphin, Pa.; 1852, Safe Harbor; 1853-4, 
Radnor; 1855, Strasburg, Lancaster County, Pa.; 
1856-7, Village Green. In 1858 he was made Super- 
numerary and after sustaining that relation for some 
years, he was placed on the Superannuated List, and 
sustained that relation until his death. During 
those years he preached when he was able. He was a 
laborious man, and his labors were often crowned with 
eminent success, many of the Churches under his 
charge being favored with "gracious revivals." His 
personal character was spotless, and his spirit of 
devotion profound and sincere. He loved his Bible 
dearly, read some portion of it every day, and regu- 
larly through once a year. He never omitted his 
private devotions. He was tenderly attached to his 
family but of late years was often too feeble to con- 
verse with those who were near and dear to him. His 
end was calm and peaceful. 

"The following extract from a letter addressed 
to his son by Rev. G. D. Carrow, his junior colleague 
on Centreville Circuit, 1844, is a fit tribute to 
his excellent character; 

"'Both in his private and public relations, your 
father' s manner was invariably that of the dignified, 
affable Christian Gentleman. This was not something 


that he had assumed - that he had acquired by study 
and imitation; but simply a natural expression of the 
inborn instincts of the man.. And as is always char- 
acteristic of the true gentleman, he was as civil and 
considerate in his treatment of the poorest and most 
obscure, as of the rich, titled and distinguished. In 
the cabin of the slave, under the roof of the humblest 
white man, he was the same in his bearing as when he was 
the guest of governors and statesmen. In his family 
his authority was exercised with something of the old 
Puritanic strictness, but this proceeded from his pro- 
found sense of his responsibility as a parent, and 
was, at proper times, relieved by playfulness with 
his children. In the pulpit, he was clear, direct, 
and practical in his style of thinking - always 'mak- 
ing out what he took in hand' and his delivery was 
graceful, natural and forcible. In the class room 
and the social circle, as a Christian counsellor, and 
especially in the chamber of sickness and of death, 
he had scarcely an equal.'" 


On Saturday, April 10, 1948, Aubrey and I motored 
up to Middlesex County, N. J., in quest of informa- 
tion about our mysterious Sutton ancestors and their 
habitats . 

I have a memorandum in father' s handwriting that 
his grandfather, Joseph Sutton, came from Middlesex 
County, N. J., enlisted in the War of 1812 and was 
mustered out at Trenton in 1815, and that he married 
Mary Clendennin. The Adjutant General's Office in 
Trenton advised me that there were two Joseph Suttons 
from Middlesex County who fought in the War in 1812. 

I discovered that the Joseph Sutton who was mus- 
tered out in Trenton was buried in Old St. James 
Episcopal Church in Piscataway and that the inscrip- 
tion of his tombstone gives his wife's name as Rachel 
Smith. After months of search I discovered, through 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, 
that the records of the First Presbyterian Church of 
Cranbury revealed that our great grandfather, Joseph 
Sutton and Mary Clendennin were married there on Oc- 
tober 11, 1801. At last our lost great grandfather 
was located. Father had found the wrong Joseph. This 


one enlisted in Cranbury in 1812 and was mustered out 
in Boston in 1817, The Church record also shows that 
Mary and James Sutton were admitted as members in 
1747. Perhaps they were his grandparents but I have 
no proof. 

We found Cranbury to be an attractive town and 
the First Presbyterian Church a beautiful edifice, 
built of wood, of colonial design, with a Sir Christ- 
opher Wren tower. We consulted a lady who had charge 
of the cemetery, but she had no record of any Sutton 
lot. We then called at the former home of Robert Sut- 
ton and the owner showed us through. The house, how- 
ever, was not built by a Sutton and there were no Sut- 
tons in the neighborhood. We had a delightful lunch 
in the old inn "where George Washington slept." 

The head of the Genealogical Society of Middle- 
sex County, Oliver Drake, motored from his home in 
Ramsay, fifty miles away, to meet us at Rutgers Col- 
lege Library and took us to the original farm of 125 
acres, granted to William Sutton in 1687 by the pro- 
prietors of East New Jersey. It is across the Rari- 
tan River from New Brunswick, a few miles west, in 
Piscataway Township. We drove along a road still 
called "Sutton Lane" to the old farm of beautiful 
rolling land with wooded hills in the distance. The 
oldest inhabitant told us that there is no old house 
now standing on the farm and no Sutton had lived in 
the neighborhood during his lifetime. 

We then went to the location of the original 
house and lot conveyed to William Sutton in 1685, 
consisting of twenty-two acres. It has now been 
swallowed up in United States Military Camp Kilmer 
and we could not get in. 

From there we went to Piscataway town, on the 
highway between New Brunswick and Perth Amboy, and 
stopped at the charming old St. James Episcopal 
Church. This is also a charming old wooden colonial 
building with tall spire. In the graveyard there are 
a number of Suttons buried. The only additional fact 
about the Sutton family I was able to obtain was that 
the original William Sutton was a Quaker. So ended 
our quest. 


Note: Mrs. Alpheus Riddle. 800 - 7th Ave., 
Parkersburg, W. Va., writes that William Sutton of 
Piscataway was the son of John Sutton* who was born 
1610 (married Juliana) who migrated from Attlebor- 
ough, England in 1638, and was the son of Rev. Thomas 
Sutton, descendant of Sir John Sutton, Baron of Dud- 
ley, b. 1400, d. 1487, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, 
who married Elizabeth, widow of Edward Lord Powys, 
daughter of Sir John Berkeley, of B ever stone. 

He was descended from Hervy (supra) whose grand- 
son was Hervy deSutton of Sutton-on-Trent, Tuxford, 
Nottinghamshire (father unknown) . His son was Roland 
or Richard, who married Alice, sister of Sir Robert 
de Lexington. 

His son, William deSutton, 1217-1267, married 
first Matilda, second Eva. 

His son, Robert, of Worksop, 1240-1275, married 
Johanna of Ekering and Allerton. 

His son, Richard deSutton, b. 1266, m. Isabella, 
daughter of William Patrick. 

His son, Sir John deSutton, b. 1350, m. Margaret 
deSomerie, who became Baroness of Dudley. 

His son, John deSutton, Baron of Dudley, 1510- 
1359, m. Isabella, daughter of John Lord Charleston. 

His son, Sir John Sutton, Baron of Dudley, b. 
1370, m. Catherine, daughter of Ralph, First Earl of 
Stafford, K.C. 

His son, Sir John deSutton, Baron of Dudley, 
1561-1595, m. first Alice, daughter of Philip LeDes- 
pencer of Earlington. 

His son, Sir John deSutton, 1580-1406, m. Con- 
stance, daughter of Sir Walter Blount, of Bartoni, 
Co. Derby. 

His son, John Sutton (above mentioned) ancestor 
of Rev. Thomas Sutton. 

-^According to Richard C. Sutton, of Brandon, Vt., 
William was the son of George Sutton, who came from 
Sandwich, Kent, England, on the Ship "Hercules" in 





As will be noted, each descendant has been des- 
ignated by a number for convenience in cross refer- 
encing and ease in identification. For all purposes 
other than relationship determination, which is ex- 
plained fully below, the designating numerals may well 
be considered as having been arbitrarily chosen in 
accordance with the plan practically universally em- 
ployed of designating each descendant by a number 
when his or her name first appears in the records and 
subsequently referring to this descendant by the num- 
ber already assigned. 

A little study will show that in the present 
records the number assigned to each descendant has 
been selected in accordance with the assumed order 
of his or her birth in his or her immediate branch 
of the family. For example, the numerals 3742 would 
be given to the second child of the fourth child of 
the seventh child, of the third child of the Pioneer. 
This individual would belong to the fourth generation 
(four numerals) below the Pioneer. A person desig- 
nated by the numerals 37156 would belong to the fifth 
generation below the Pioneer. The parent (No. 3715) 
is the first cousin of the one bearing the numerals 
3742, because they have a common grandparent, desig- 
nated by the number 37. 

It should be especially noted by those inclined 
to use the numerals not only for purposes of identi- 
fication (for which all systems of numbering are 
equally suitable) , but also for relationship deter- 
mination (for which the method herein employed is 
particularly advantageous) , that absolutely no error 
is introduced into the relationship determination 
even when the assumed order of birth in a family is 
not the true order, provided only that the designat- 
ing numerals when once assigned to the members of a 
family are adhered to consistently. 

For the benefit of those familiar with the ar- 
bitrarily-selected continuously -numbered system of 
designation, it should be stated that in the follow- 
ing pages all of the records of all of the descend- 
ants of an individual are covered completely, to and 
including the present generation consistently through- 
out, before any record whatsoever is given of the de- 
scendants of his or her younger brother or sister.

lution he moved to Charlestown Twp., Ches-

terwards bought the "Bull Tavern" on

ty of Friends. His wife, formerly Sarah 
Richardson, having been dealt with by the 
Friends of Gwynedd Monthly Meeting for 
marrying Edward Lane, who a few years be- 
fore had gone to fight the French and In-

years of age, he had served three terms 
and in the fall of 1777, when 17 years, 
was at the Battle of Warren Tavern. He 
became a lieutenant of militia, Chester 
County, during the Revolution, and served 
as a member of the House of Representa- 
tives of the United States, 1803-7. He
